Stressful Childhood = Sick Adult?
article in the March 21st issue of
The New Yorker explores
Support for addressing the long-term
affects of childhood mental trauma
is subpar. The piece follows an
innovative doctor who set up a
clinic in an impoverished area of
San Francisco. She has been pooling
data from patients and assessing
their health risks based upon
childhood experiences. Here are
several things we learned:
Regarding childhood trauma as a
medical issue helps her treat
her patients more effectively.
When this is applied to large
populations, some public health
experts believe it may alleviate
broader dysfunction, especially
in poor neighborhoods.
A study called ACE found that
regardless of economic
demographic, if there were
significant stressors in the
subjects' childhoods (such as a
parent who was a drunk, a drug
user, or child abuser), the rate
of negative outcomes as adults
such as chronic disease or
committing abuse themselves rose
exponentially compared to
subjects with no stressors. For
example, subjects with high
stressor scores were twice as
likely to smoke, seven times
more likely to be alcoholics,
twice as likely to get cancer
and heart disease, seven times
more likely to attempt suicide,
and forty-six times more likely
to inject drugs.
As this physician began to
incorporate mental health
diagnoses and therapy (through
lifestyle, and dietary methods),
the results have been positive.
While it is too early to
tabulate results for chronic
disease and their effect on
adults, she is seeing positive
results in her young patients'
behavior and school performance.
