Adversity in childhood, particularly in the absence of protective factors, can have
profound developmental consequences. If not addressed, childhood adversity can initiate a “cascade” of risk factors, often leading to behavior problems, school failure, substance abuse and other negative outcomes. Health care personnel are in a unique position to identify and intervene early in this process. By educating families, strengthening protective factors, and working with children to build resilience, health care workers can help to prevent the onset of problems later in childhood or adolescence. This webinar will provide a brief overview of adversity, resilience, and implications for prevention of substance abuse and other negative outcomes. It will also describe effective prevention approaches in a variety of healthcare settings, including pediatric hospitals, emergency departments, school health clinics, and home visiting programs. Particular attention will be paid to a dual-generation approach and to building partnerships for prevention.
