Adverse Childhood Experiences and Depression/Anxiety in Youth: Latent Class Analysis

Mar 31, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Mar 31, 2019 12:30pm


Description

This program examines (1) latent groups of youths with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) by using latent class analysis, in which subjects are grouped based on their patterns and characteristics of responses; and (2) each latent group’s severities of depression and anxiety. Attendees will learn about latent groups of youths with ACEs and the impact of ACEs on youths’ mental health in the context of latent groups. They will also be informed of implications for working with youths with ACEs and depression and anxiety.

  • First of all, this presentation aims to promote the understanding of latent groups of youths with ACEs. Based on their experiences with different ACEs and particular intersectionalities, youths are grouped, and each group would show different patterns, characteristics, and difficulties. Addressing the latent groups and each group’s characteristics, this presentation will allow the audience to learn about how youths’ experiences with particular ACEs and intersectionalities are associated with one another.
  • This presentation also aims to explore associations of ACEs with depression and anxiety in youths. Specifically, this presentation will focus on addressing how each latent group of youths with ACEs show different severities of depression and anxiety. Presenting such associations, this presentation will let the audience learn about the impact of ACEs on youths’ depression and anxiety more precisely and exquisitely.
  • As depression and anxiety are commonly reported among youths in counseling settings, this presentation ultimately aims to provide implications for counselors to serve this particular population better. Based on the latent groups and their associations with youths’ mental health, this presentation will address preventions and interventions that counselors can apply to their work with clients who have ACEs and depression or anxiety.
