Adverse Childhood Experiences: The Neutralizing Impact of Resilience
by Brinkerhoff, Kristina L., Ph.D., Northwest Nazarene University, 2017, 127; 10622444
Abstract (Summary)

Research surrounding the prevalence and impact of adversity during childhood has surfaced as a possible key to addressing the impact of chronic stress on children during their early years and well into adulthood. The research has suggested that when resilience is present, due to protective factors being in place, there may be neutralization of the negative impact and outcomes due to the physiological effects of chronic stressors. Identifying which protective factors have the greatest neutralizing impact may provide educators, physicians, and parents better aid in the prevention and healing of children who have been exposed to chronic adversity. This research provides insight into the negative impact of adversity and the neutralizing impact of resilience on physical, psychological, and emotional well-being
