Insights into What Adverse Childhood Experiences Study Teaches Us

first_imgBy: Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFTOn August 17th, Dr. Melissa Merrick from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided us with a unique opportunity- a chance to take an in-depth look at the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study and what it means for the future health and well-being of our children.The following are some highlights of Dr. Merrick’s webinar:Violence compromises early brain development.ACEs can have lasting effects on health, behaviors, and life potential.Of the 10 leading causes of death in the U.S. in 2014,  7 have direct associations to early adversity.Preventing child maltreatment requires understanding why some children and families are at greater risk.Early adversity can literally make us sick. And, not only does early adversity affect later health, but also life opportunities that can be protective for our health.Brown and colleagues (1998) documented a 19-year difference in life expectancy between those who had high (6+) versus no ACEs.The exposure to violence, especially in childhood, is a public health priority.CDC is committed to stopping violence before it happens. This is also known as primary prevention.Violence prevention is strategic. The importance of preventing early adversity has never been clearer given the impacts of health and life opportunities that reverberates across generations.Current efforts to prevent early adversity will be more successful if they broaden public and professional understanding of the links between early adversity and poverty and the structural barriers that reduce the likelihood of moving out of poverty.Are you interested yet?

Iraq war: 2003 invasion not to blame, says Blair

first_imgEven as the 2003 invasion of Iraq by British and US forces to find out “weapons of mass destruction” is back in focus, former UK prime minister Tony Blair has said that war should not be blamed for the violent insurgency that has gripped the country, with critics rejecting his comments as “bizarre”.This image posted on a militant website on Saturday, June 14, 2014, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, appears to show militants from the Al Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) leading away captured Iraqi soldiers in plain clothes after taking over a base in Tikrit, Iraq. The Islamic militant group that seized much of northern Iraq has posted photos that appear to show its fighters shooting dead dozens of captured Iraqi soldiers in a province north of the capital Baghdad. Iraq’s top military spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi confirmed the photos’ authenticity on Sunday and said he was aware of cases of mass murder of Iraqi soldiers. AP PhotoFILE – In this Friday, June 13, 2014 file photo, An Iraqi refugee girl from Mosul stands outside her family’s tent at Khazir refugee camp outside Irbil, 217 miles (350 kilometers) north of Baghdad, Iraq. Days after Iraq’s second-largest city fell to Al Qaeda-inspired fighters, some Iraqis are already returning to Mosul, lured back by insurgents offering cheap gas and food, restoring power and water and removing traffic barricades. AP PhotoAsserting that there would still be a “major problem” in Iraq even without the toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003, Blair told BBC the current crisis “affects us all”, calling for more western intervention in the area.Militants post images of mass killingadvertisementMeanwhile, the Islamic militant group that seized much of northern Iraq has posted photos that appear to show its fighters shooting dead dozens of captured Iraqi soldiers in a province north of the capital Baghdad, AP adds.The pictures on a militant website appear to show masked fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, loading the captives onto flatbed trucks before forcing them to lie face-down in a shallow ditch with their arms tied behind their backs. The final images appear to show the bodies of the captives soaked in blood after being shot.Captions say the killings were to avenge the death of an ISIL commander, Abdul-Rahman al-Beilawy, whose death was reported by both the government and ISIL shortly before the Al Qaeda splinter group captured Iraq’s second largest city Mosul and Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit in a lightning offensive.Iraq’s top military spokesman, Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, confirmed the photos’ authenticity on Sunday and said he was aware of cases of mass murder of captured Iraqi soldiers in areas held by ISIL.UN human rights chief Navi Pillay warned on Friday of “murder of all kinds” and other war crimes in Iraq, and said the number killed in recent days may run into the hundreds, while the wounded could approach 1,000. Speaking in Geneva, she said her office has received reports that militants rounded up and killed Iraqi soldiers as well as 17 civilians in a single street in Mosul.Her office heard of “summary executions and extrajudicial killings” after ISIL militants overran Iraqi cities and towns, the statement said.Most of the soldiers who appear in the pictures are in civilian clothes. Some are shown wearing military uniforms underneath, indicating they may have hastily disguised themselves as civilians to try to escape.Many soldiers and policemen left their uniforms and equipment behind as the militants swept into Mosul, Tikrit and surrounding areas.The captions did not provide a date or location, but al-Moussawi said the killings took place in Salahuddin province, the capital of which is Tikrit.last_img read more
