Dr. Vincent Felitti

The co-principal investigator of the national Adverse Childhood Experience Study appears on DIALOGUE. Dr. Vincent Felitti talks with Joan Cartan-Hansen about the effects of adverse childhood experiences on individuals as they reach adulthood. He addresses the links between childhood trauma and adult physical health.

The medical doctor explains how employers, counselors and insurance companies deal with health problems associated with abuse, and offers suggestions to parents about how they can improve a child’s life.
