Determinants of Health: New Directions in Trauma-Informed Care

With 82.7 percent of U.S. respondents to an international population survey of 24 countries indicating they have experienced some form of trauma, our nation ranks among the highest of those surveyed. Analysis of data from the National Survey of Children’s Health shows at least 38 percent of children in the United States have had a least one Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE), such as witnessing or being a victim of violence, death or incarceration of a parent, or living with someone with a drug or alcohol problem.

At the Ann Ottney Cain Lecture in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing, Linda Grabbe, PhD, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC, clinical assistant professor at the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University in Atlanta, will focus on trauma’s impact on physical and mental health and well-being and on methods of delivering trauma-informed care.

The lecture will be held Thursday, March 29, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (with a reception to follow), at the University of Maryland School of Nursing, Room 130.
