Finding Your ACE Score
for the client you selected in the Week 1 Choose Your Client discussion forum. Complete it based on what you have been able to find out about your client’s childhood and whether your client experienced any of the events detailed in the questionnaire.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Please elaborate on the following as you complete your discussion:
- Provide your client’s ACE score. Keep in mind that the higher the score, the greater the likelihood of negative outcomes in adulthood.
- Evaluate your client’s ACE score using examples of trauma experienced in childhood. If your client had no childhood trauma, or you were unable to locate any credible information about your client to answer the ACE questions, please provide general examples of the types of adverse childhood experiences that may lead to negative outcomes as adults.
- Examine how childhood trauma influences criminality in adulthood.
Why should the community be concerned about minimizing adverse childhood experiences?
