November 17, 2017

Children who experience an increase of zero to three adverse childhood events, including poverty or traumatic events, were 25% more likely to have physical health problems and increased depression in adolescence.

“Health care professionals need to start attending to psychosocial adversity as a tangible risk factor for disease,” Joan L. Luby, MD, the Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Professor of Child Psychiatry and director of the early emotional development program at Washington University School of Medicine, said in an interview with Infectious Diseases in Children. “They should assess how much adversity the adolescent is still experiencing and address these ongoing stressors as health risks in the same way they might address diet or exercise.”
