Trauma is Messy

Jon Eppley ·
I will always remember the day that, as a student teacher, I watched as a student entered my second-grade room covered in blood.

Common risk behaviors such as smoking tobacco and alcohol misuse can be a result from the trauma of childhood disadvantage. In responding to ACEs, public health research proposes that protective factors such as safe, stable, nurturing relationships (SSNRs) with a caring adult can mitigate the long-term effects of...
