This presentation will explore the developmental significance of trauma. It considers single incidents, multiple incidents, and chronic severe trauma in earl childhood as forces shaping development through adolescence into adulthood. It offers the rational for focusing on Post Traumatic Stress Development (rather than Disorder). It includes an appreciation of how an ecological perspective on human develop helps to provide a better understanding of the developmental impact of trauma than narrow clinical perspectives. It utilizes research employing the Adverse Childhood Experiences Scale as an illustration of this understanding.
