Adverse Childhood Experiences

Childhood trauma is far more common than previously realized. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, a collaborative between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente's Health Appraisal Clinic in San Diego, assessed associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. The ACE Study findings suggest that certain experiences are major risk factors for the leading causes of illness and death as well as poor quality of life in the United States. The higher the total ACEs count, the more likely the respondent experienced poor health - both self-reported and clinically measured.1
