Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs)

Paying Attention to the ACE Study: Check out the article from the National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health, which  highlights the recent attention to the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study that began in 1995. Entitled “Who Needs to Pay Attention to the ACE Study,” the article points out that it usually takes about 17 years for something we know from research to be put into practice. It is available at http://tiny.cc/t32gwx. The article also references the February 2015 TED talk by pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris on “How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across a Lifespan.” Listen to it at http://tiny.cc/a42gwx.
