3 The Early Years Matter

4 The Earliest Years Leave a Permanent Imprint
During a child’s first three to five years: Up to 90% of a child’s brain development takes place Patterns of behavior are formed A child’s learning capacity is firmly and broadly established “The later in life we attempt to repair early deficits, the costlier the remediation becomes.” - James J. Heckman, 2000 Nobel Laureate in Economics

5 Five Things To Know Neurodevelopment Processes
Genetic predisposition exasperated by environmental influences (Nature And Nurture) Long term negative outcomes for physical health, emotional health and society for bad things happening to children. Long term positive outcomes when good things happen, potentially protective as well. These issues impact us all; no social, economic or cultural group is immune.

6 Across the Lifespan Intrauterine Experience - Heart Disease, Obesity, Diabetes, Pollution, Mental Illness. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) - long-term changes in brain structure and function. 67% of all of us (87% < 1 ACE). Mortality - Individuals with an ACE score of 6 and higher had a lifespan almost 2 decades shorter than seen in those with an ACE Score of 0 but who otherwise have similar characteristics.

7 Social and Emotion Health is Directly Impacted by Experiences

8 Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Neuroscientists have linked childhood maltreatment to long-term changes in brain structure and function. Stress hormones interfere with mylenation: impacting the connective tissue between hemispheres - logical/emotional state lacks integration. Parts of brain responsible for affect regulation, learning and memory. Type of abuse: Verbal Abuse- Auditory Cortex; Witnessing Domestic Abuse-Visual Cortex

9 Stunning difference between a brain with proper stimulation and one that has been deprived. - Bruce Perry, Baylor College of Medicine

10 Serve and Return (1:42 min)
Process by which attachment forms Can be taught. High jacked by Media? How would you know what to do when you have never experienced it? How would you know what not to do if it was all you knew?

11 Attachment (still face 2:49)
Maternal Depression/Mental Illness Impact on Attachment is across the lifespan. Sensitive periods. Estimates of secure attachment in general population between 55-65% About 40% of children insecurely attached. As high as 90% in some impacted populations. Inability to form quality relationships or have empathy for others.

12 Socially deprived cohort of mothers
With High Mentalization: 10/10 secure children With Low Mentalization: 1/17 secure children Mentalization confers resilience: ability to recognize your own and others’ mental states, and to see these mental states as separate from behavior

13 Trauma and early attachment patterns determine brain development.
Clare Pain, M.D. Bessel A. Van der Kolk, M.D. Martin H. Teicher, M.D., Ph.D. Marylene Cloitre, Ph.D. Judith Herman, M.D. National Child Traumatic Stress Network

14 Trauma & Attachment Theory of Change (5:18 min)
Personal Responsibility? (1:01 min)

15 Why It Matters Until now, these persistent effects were “hidden” from the view of both neuroscientists and public health researchers This is no longer the case. In fact, with this information comes the responsibility to use it. If we can think long term instead of short term, our community’s social, emotional, health and economic welfare will benefit.

16 In Other Words… Communities need to build their capacity to deliver trauma-informed care services to achieve safety, permanency and well being for their children and families and develop community building activities to reduce ACES over the long term (Trauma Exposure Among Select Wisconsin Families in the Child Welfare System ) Root Cause Return on Investment Measurable Goals and Outcomes Cradle to Career Manufacturing Graph Lean 6 Sigma Processes “Unemployable Populations” Skilled Worker Shortages


18 A Community Plan

19 We finally know… What Nurses have known all along
What Home Visitors have long suspected What the Health Profession has been trying to tell us… This is bigger than any one of us There are no quick fixes

20 Taking What We Know and Changing What We Do
