dc.description.abstract This PowerPoint addresses the effect that exposure to violence, direct and indirect, has on childhood development. There are critical periods in a child’s life for forming important social-emotional skills. Those skills can become underdeveloped in the presence of adverse childhood experiences. This PowerPoint outlines three ways to optimize trauma-exposed children’s outcomes: focus on skill building, be holistic in scope, and implement strategies early. The Forum on Global Violence Prevention held a two-day public workshop titled "Neurocognitive and Psychosocial Impacts of Violence," where presenters were invited to discuss "the current state of the science surrounding the impacts of exposure to violence and trauma on both neurocognitive and psychosocial outcomes." In addition to discussing harms of violence, presenters also discussed prevention and interventions that can contribute to resilience-building, particularly in youth.
