The Kaiser-Permanente Study and subsequent studies show a strong correlation between the number of early adverse childhood events (ACE's) and subsequent physical, mental, and emotional problems. Attachment models in part view these ACE's as evidence of inadequate parent-child attachments that impact relationships through the lifespan. In this workshop, the use of the ACE's scores and correlated mental and emotional symptoms, along with mediating dysfunctional beliefs as described by REBT to develop an approach to treating relevant childhood trauma and neglect will be addressed. 


Learning Objectives:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how REBT conceptualizes the relationship of early adverse childhood trauma and neglect to subsequent mental and emotional disturbance.
  • Discuss the emotional and behavioral symptoms often associated with high ACE's score.
  • Explain REBT cognitive, emotive, and behavioral interventions to treat the dysfunctional emotions and behaviors that impede the attainment of desired life goals.
