Childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences can lead to an array of behaviors aimed at coping with trauma related dysregulation. This presentation will explore how eating disorders, substance abuse, and self-injury can initially function as solutions to managing post traumatic symptoms before becoming more challenging difficulties to treat. Through a trauma informed lens, we will discuss the necessity of healing underlying trauma to create a path towards resilience and sustained recovery.
