As a psychiatric-mental health nursing expert and nurse scientist, a consistent theme of my work has been empowerment beginning with my research on the nursing work environments to my studies on decreasing inpatient coercive practices of seclusion and restraint to resilience with low-income adolescents with adverse childhood experiences. Testing an intervention for young adults with ACE brings my work from tertiary care to a secondary intervention to address trauma, risk behaviors and health sequela and primary prevention to recognize strengths and build resilience for young adult’s well being for today and for their future.
