Adverse childhood experiences are plaguing the children of our society. While they vary in nature and severity, all are traumatic. Some adverse childhood experiences are physical, mental, or emotional abuse, while others are absent, incarcerated, addicted or even deceased parents. Due to the wide range, it is difficult to determine the severity of one over another. However, research shows that teaching resilience and building relationships may mitigate the effects and even lead to posttraumatic growth.
