A new policy brief from the Weitzman Institute looks at how the health, social, and economic impact of COVID-19 may result in an increase in adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), especially in our most vulnerable populations, and discusses the public health responses needed to effectively address ACEs in our communities.

The brief builds upon Weitzman Institute staff Dr. April Joy Damian, Daniel Bryant, and May Oo’s recent article in Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy, and forthcoming chapter in the book Handbook of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): A Framework for Collaborative Health Promotion.
