StoryDr. Ginsburg practices social adolescent medicine -- service with special attention to prevention and the recognition that social context and stressors affect both physical and emotional health. His research over the last 30 years has focused on facilitating youth to develop their own solutions to social problems and to teach adults how to better serve them.
This talk will cover the proven effects of childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences on the brain, body, and behavior throughout the lifetime. It will then introduce the essentials of delivering strength-based trauma-sensitive care and offer a few strategies to APPLY these principles in our work with children and youth. It will focus on the power of well-boundaried loving human connection in healing and developing youth to become their best selves. It will speak to the imperative of restoring a positive sense of self back to people who have been unjustly mislabeled as problems. It will offer examples of how to give control back to people from whom it has been taken away. Above all, it will discuss the imperative of creating safe, secure, and sustained adult relationships for young people.
