Understanding Historical Trauma with Ingrid Cockhren

Ingrid Cockhren is the CEO of PACEs Connection, a social network that connects organizations, systems, and communities that implement trauma-informed policies and practices, as well as positive and adverse childhood experience (PACEs) science. 

Ingrid dedicated her career to educating the public about the connection between adversity and poor health outcomes, including depression, anxiety, criminal behavior, and incarceration.  

Ingrid entered academia with the question, “Why do so many African American children end up in our juvenile justice system?” Considering Black parenting styles, scientific colonialism, toxic stress, and intergenerational trauma, she makes the connection between adverse childhood experiences and the implications of historical trauma. 

She also shares how her own adverse experience as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and her work with primarily black incarcerated youth brought her to complex and historical trauma. 

About Ingrid Cockhren: 

Ingrid Cockhren is an adjunct professor specializing in Black psychology, developmental psychology, abnormal psychology, and personality theory at Tennessee State University. She holds a B.S. in psychology from Tennessee State University and an M.Ed. in child studies from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, specializing in minority and impoverished children. Cockhren’s research focuses on African American parenting styles, positive and adverse childhood experiences, historical trauma, intergenerational trauma, brain development, developmental psychology, and epigenetics.
