Trauma isn't isolated to war. It occurs in many different ways impacting how we see the world around us and interpret everything from facial expressions to the evening news. Trauma can be a singular event, a series of repeated events over a lifetime, or internationally passed down through traumatic experiences in the family or cultural unit. 61% of men and 55% of women have experienced singular trauma in the U.S. with 90% of the population in behavioral health settings experiencing at least one traumatic event. Adverse Childhood Experiences, ACE's, impact not only child learning, but have deeper felt impacts in the health and longevity of those it has impacted.
