ACEs are traumatic events that occur before a child reaches the age of 18. ACEs include abuse, neglect, household dysfunction, physical and mental illness, and emotional abuse, among others. The incidences of adverse experiences can exacerbate the child's stress response system; over time, this will wear down the body and the brain and is called toxic stress. Toxic stress may adversely affect the development and well-being of the child, causing grave damage to the child. A study of ACE found a direct link between childhood trauma and adult onset of chronic disease, incarceration, and employment challenges and that the higher the number of ACEs, the greater the incidence of adverse outcomes. We will look at Risk factors, prevention strategies, and recovery.
