Evolving a More Nurturing Society to Prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences

< Back to All Resources

This study published in a recent edition of Academic Pediatrics explores the idea of building a framework for society to prevent adverse life experiences through development of more nurturing prosocial values. Evidence supports the fact that social conditions such as poverty, conflict, discrimination, and other social rejections are major contributors to psychological, behavioral, and health problems that affect much of the population. This article suggests that by prioritizing prosocial values through effective family and school prevention programs, risk for negative health-related outcomes will be reduced.
