Adverse Childhood Experience Study
The CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and later-life health and well-being. Study findings repeatedly reveal a graded dose-response relationship between ACEs and negative health and well-being outcomes across the life course. The new science on adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress has given us a new lens through which to understand the human story; why we suffer, how we parent, and how we can recover and heal on a deeper level than we thought possible.
