Childhood trauma affect health across a lifetime


Lit Review

a.                  Introduction and Background


a.                   Substantial evidence has been accumulated from the past (more than ten decades), indicating a causal link between childhood adversity & risks of poor health in the future (Turner et al., 2016).

b.                  Cases of child maltreatment have been high, since the times of immemorial, and maltreated children show abnormal life (Stoltenborgh et al., 2015).

c.                   Exposure to adversity in childhood leads to adverse health outcomes in the future life (Sachs-Ericsson et al., 2016).

d.                  Growing evidence that toxic stressors in early life result in developmental complications (Nurius et al., 2015).

b.                  Theoretical Foundation

Resilience Portfolio Model (Sachs-Ericsson et al., 2016).

Ungar’s context model (Maercker et al., 2016).

Path-analysis model (Maercker et al., 2016).

c.                   Review of Literature topics with the critical theme

a.                   Exposure to Childhood trauma results to adult socioeconomic position (SEP), adult stress exposure and adult health. The effects are promoted more by of biological embedding process. It suggests that the longer the duration of exposure, the more the physical health will be affected adversely. Post Childhood intervention can serve as an effective intervention strategy (Turner et al., 2016).

b.                  Early exposure to child sexual, physical and emotional abuse and physical and emotional neglect result in poor health during adulthood. There is a need to protect children from sexual abuse, physical abuse, and emotional abuse, for them to have a healthy and happy life during their adulthood (Stoltenborgh et al., 2015).

c.                   Subjecting children and adolescents to high levels of adversity including child abuse result in poor physical health.  Higher trauma exposure leads to physical health problems. Key factors are life dissatisfaction, depression, and lack of social support (Maercker et al., 2016).

d.                  Children who are exposed to burden to childhood victimization end up developing poor physical health in their adulthood, as opposed to those who have been raised with strengths of emotion regulation, socialization, and practicing forgiveness (Sachs-Ericsson et al., 2016).

e.                   Early childhood adversity results in poor physical health in a future life, characterized by adult stress and resilience resources (Nurius et al., 2015).


a.                   Background; there is a need to close the gap between Childhood trauma and adult health.

b.                  Gap/problem; demonstrate a relationship between Childhood trauma and poor adult health.

c.                   Avoid factors that expose children to trauma such as child labor, sexual abuse, physical and mental abuse.

d.                  Post childhood intervention should be provided to children who have undergone through traumatizing events during their early life.
