Trauma-Informed Approaches to Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Brief


Please consider reviewing the s resource titled “Trauma-Informed Approaches to Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Brief”. It can be found attached to this post. The purpose of this resource is to describe the connection between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and tobacco use; share how cessation service delivery can adopt and implement trauma-informed approaches; and provide recommendations and strategies for how cessation programs can apply the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMSHA) “Six Principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach.”

This brief was created in partnership by the California Department of Public Health, Injury and Prevention Branch (CDPH/IVPB) and the California Department of Social Service, Office of Child Abuse Prevention’s (CDSS/OCAP)’s, Essentials for Childhood (EfC) Initiative and CDPH’s California Tobacco Control Branch (CTCB). We are excited to share this resource with all those who are interested in creating tobacco-free environments and countering trauma and adversity.

Please consider sharing this brief with your networks and thank you for your partnership and efforts to improve child wellbeing in California.
