Trauma Informed Primary Care

Most research on trauma and trauma informed care has focused on adolescents, or mental health in adults usually examining a single type of abuse (most frequently sexual abuse). Over the last 20 years, we have begun to recognize the association that adverse childhood events contribute to the development of risk factors that contribute to morbidity and mortality in adults: obesity, substance abuse, heart disease.
