Putting the Power of Self Knowledge to Work

Childhood trauma, or adverse childhood experiences (ACE), can cause a number of social problems such as dropping out of school, drug abuse, depression, and even becoming an abuser. The more accessible ACE research studies are to communities and schools, the better chances social workers and mental health professionals can evaluate and provide the right care to children. Integrating ACE research has influenced policy changes that have directly helped at-risk children get on a healthier path.
