Adverse Childhood Experiences Book Excerpt:

This guide provides healthcare students and professionals with a foundational background on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) – traumatic early life experiences, which can have a profound impact on health in later life. ACEs can include being a victim of abuse, neglect or exposure to risk in the home or community. How healthcare students and professionals learn to recognize, react and respond to persons affected by trauma will lay the foundation for their relationships with patients. This book intentionally uses micro-to-macro lenses accompanied by a structural competency framework to elucidate health implications across the lifespan. It explores the nature of adversity and its effects on the physical, emotional, cognitive and social health of individuals, communities and society. The book, written by two experienced psychiatric nurses, will equip healthcare students and professionals with an understanding for critical change in practice and offer action steps designed to assist them with prevention and intervention approaches and steps to help build resilience. This book will be core reading for healthcare students within mental health, pediatric and primary care nursing courses.

Alleviating the Educational Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences Book Excerpt:

Recent crises—whether policy-induced (e.g., family separation at the Mexico/U.S. border) or natural disaster-related (e.g., hurricanes in Florida and North Carolina and wildfires in California)—have galvanized the attention of the U.S. and international public on the plight of children who endure these traumatic events. The sheer enormity of such wrenching events tend to overshadow the trauma endured by many children whose everyday life circumstances fall short of affording them a safe, stable, and nurturing environment. At the national level, three rounds of data collection spanning January 2008 through April 2014 constituted the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) that—according to Finkelhor, Turner, Shattuck, and Hambly (2013) in reporting on the 2011 round—assessed “a wide range of childhood victimizations” (pp. 614-615). Among many other findings, Finkelor et al. concluded that “overall, 57.7% of the children and youth had experienced or witnessed at least 1 to 5 aggregate exposures (assaults and bullying, sexual victimization, maltreatment by a caregiver, property victimization, or witnessing victimization) in the year before this survey” (p. 619). According to the recent re-visiting of NatSCEV II by Turner et al. (2017), “almost 1 in 4 children and adolescents ages 5-15 in the United States lived in family environments with only modest levels of safety, stability, and nurturance, while about 1 in 15 had consistently low levels across multiple domains” (p. 8). Adverse childhood events (ACEs) have both immediate and long-term impacts on children’s health and well-being (Banyard, Hambly, & Grych, 2017; Bowen, Jarrett, Stahl, Forrester, & Valmaggia, 2018; Walker & Walsh, 2015). Children do not shed their entanglement with ACEs at the schoolroom door. To highlight just one study, Jimenez, Wade, Lin, Morrow, & Reichman (2016) conducted a secondary analysis of a national urban birth cohort and found that experiencing ACEs in early childhood was “associated with below-average, teacher-reported academic and literacy skills and [more] behavior problems in kindergarten” (p. 1).

Trauma And Adverse Childhood Experiences Book Excerpt:

A large number of adverse experiences (ie, toxic stressors) in childhood can trigger a toxic stress response.456 These range from the commonplace (eg, parental divorce) to the horrific (eg, the 6 year old "soldier" ordered to shoot and kill his mother7). Adversity can affect development in myriad ways, at different points in time, although early exposures that persist over time likely lead to more lasting impacts. Moreover, adversity can become biologically embedded, increasing the likelihood of long term change. Contextual factors are important.

Effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences ACEs on Control of Diabetes Book Excerpt:

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are defined as abuse, neglect and other traumatic events that are experienced by individuals under the age of 18. The historic landmark ACE study showed as the number of ACEs increase, the risk for health problems also increases in a strong and graded fashion. The ACE study also found a relationship between the number of traumatic childhood experiences and the health and well-being of the individual as an adult. The present study examined the prevalence of ACEs in an adult cohort from an urban community health center and the association between the number of ACEs and poor diabetic control as well as social demographic characteristics of the cohort. The study involved administering the validated ACE questionnaire to 112 subjects and recording the latest A1C test result. The cohort ranged in age from 25 to 78 years, 65% were black and 29% were white, 45% had more than a high school education. ACE score ranged from 0 to 9 with a mean score of 2.8 (SD, 2.3) with 14% having a score of 0; 21% with a score of 1; 16% with a score of 2; 17% with a score of 3; and 32% with a score of = 4. A1C ranged from 5.0 to 13.4 with a mean of 7.9 (SD, 1.8). Comparing A1C and ACE to social demographics showed gender to be significant with a mean A1C for females of 7.7 (SD, 1.5) compared to males 8.2 (SD, 2.2) with a p-value of 0.021. ACE mean for females was 3.3 (SD, 2.4) compared to males 2.2 (SD, 2.0) with a p-value of .011. Incidences of ACEs by gender were also found to be significant with women recalling more incidences of sexual abuse (p=0.001) and emotional neglect (p=0.020). Incidences of ACEs by race/ethnicity was significant for physiological abuse (p=0.049), parental divorce (p=0.006), witnessing maternal violence (p=0.025) and household criminal activity (p=0.052) between whites and blacks and significant for physical abuse between blacks and others (p=0.035). Incidences of ACEs by educational level was significant for recalling household criminal activity between those who had less than a high school degree compared to those with more than a high school degree (p=0.006). Total A1C was significantly influenced by the ACE category of psychological abuse (p=0.053). The present study found a significantly higher prevalence of ACEs compared to the original landmark ACE study. It was also found that A1C and ACE items were related to social demographics. These findings support the need for further research to determine if social demographic related interventions could reduce the health effects of ACEs.

Alleviating the Educational Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences Book Excerpt:

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) may include major disruptive events (e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes, or floods), but more pervasive is the impact of the daily stress of coping with one of more of the facets of family challenges (e.g. economic hardship and its attendant issues) or even dysfunction (e.g. parent or guardian divorce or separation, or living with neglectful or abusive parents). The use of the term pervasive is warranted. For example, as highlighted in the Introduction, a 2019 study of the findings emerging from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health found that, among the more than 45,000 children on whom parents reported data, more than one-fifth experienced economic hardship and parent/guardian divorce. The consequences for educators of children exposed to ACEs are far-reaching and have galvanized the attention of a broad swath of educational researchers and practitioners. As discussed in a 2019 insightful five-part series in Education Week (https: //www.edweek.org/ew/collections/trauma-sensitive-schools/index.html), the consequences include the imperative for teachers and educational leaders to adopt an informed approach to alleviating the educational impact of ACEs on their students while making provision for their own well-being. In this volume, various authors explore the educational context of ACEs and describe and reflect on their research-inspired endeavors to integrate the resources of schools, universities, and communities to sustain a safe and supportive educational environment for and build the resilience of all students.

Epidemic Of Childhood Trauma Book Excerpt:

Almost two-thirds of adults surveyed reported at least one Adverse Childhood Experience - and the majority of respondents who reported had more than one. Our childhood experiences have a tremendous, lifelong impact on our health and the quality of our lives. The authors' main thesis, quite simply, is that protecting all our children is entirely possible, but only when we know the scope of the challenges families face. The book provides a detailed, data-driven analysis of the scope of the problem, various component parts, and how to strengthen systems designed to protect our children. The book suggests a series of shockingly modest yet strategic reforms, changes that can ensure that the future systems of protection in every community are better at identifying their own shortcomings and fixing them. The proven strategies proposed have the power to heal families, illustrating how we can all take courageous and compassionate steps toward designing child-friendly, trauma-free communities.

The Roots of Resilience Book Excerpt:

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are associated with multiple negative outcomes in young adulthood, including psychological distress, impediment of attaining normative developmental roles, and the presence of physical health risk factors. What is less understood is the relationship between ACEs and positive outcomes, such as wellbeing, and the processes by which it may be achieved following childhood maltreatment. Resilience has also been identified as an important and dynamic process, by which people can overcome early adversity. Accordingly, this research sought to explore the relationships between ACEs, resilience and wellbeing. The first study investigated the pervasiveness of ACEs and gender differences, using a newly revised measure of childhood adversity. The second study explored the effects of ACEs on five domains of wellbeing, and the possible mediation of this relationship by resilience resources. A self-selected sample (N = 1,266) aged between 18 and 35, who had grown up in New Zealand, completed an anonymous online survey consisting of the revised Adverse Childhood Experiences scale, which measured abuse and household dysfunction, along with newly added community level adversities. They also completed the Resilience Scale for Adults - a measure of six dynamic resilience resources; and the PERMA-Profiler - a new measure of Seligman's (2011) five domains of wellbeing, which had not been used before to measures associations between wellbeing and early adversity. ACEs were prevalent, and the most common ACEs were peer isolation and rejection, a family member with a mental illness or who had attempted suicide, and peer victimisation, respectively. Support was found for the use of the expanded ACEs measure, with peer isolation and rejection, and peer victimisation both new additions to the ACE scale. Findings highlighted differences between the genders, with gender diverse people experiencing significantly higher rates of cumulative childhood trauma than females and males. ACEs were also associated with decreased wellbeing across all domains; and this relationship was mediated by resilience and its constituent elements. The resilience resources perception of self, perception of future, and social resources were shown as being particularly important to wellbeing, in those who had experienced childhood maltreatment. The findings implicated resilience as being an important part of the realisation of wellbeing following traumatic childhoods, and emphasised the importance of considering resilience as a multi-dimensional process. The benefits of early intervention from a social ecological approach to resilience are discussed.

Aces in the Shadows Book Excerpt:

The authors adverse childhood experiences are an example of how society has mistreated children over many years, while pretending to be a sophisticated, first world country. The reality is very different. Children, and there are many thousands of them, have had their life chances completely destroyed by adults who abused their power and influence. The war, and it is a war, against the violation of children in our country and many others, has only just begun. It will be a long war. The ACEs movement is one of the battalions fighting for change. Graham Wilmer MBE - Director Lantern Project This is an open and unrestricted account of the impact on ACEs for not only children but adults. The bravery of the Author to place this in the public arena is not unrecognised. Having established the England North ACEs Network, it has been a pleasure to work with The Cumbria Resilience Project and ACEs Cumbria Forum and to support their efforts to become an ACEs aware region. The momentum of this movement in the North is testimony to those who are 'driving' the bus forward and believe that it doesn't have to be this way. This book is written to allow anyone to understand what ACEs are and why they are important for every single person no matter who you are. Dr Wendy Thorley PhD, M.Ed., B.A (Hons) Ed. R.G.N.

How To Combat ACEs Book Excerpt:

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) refer to some of the most intensive and frequently occurring sources of stress that children may suffer early in life. Such experiences include multiple types of abuse; neglect; violence between parents or caregivers; other kinds of serious household dysfunction such as alcohol and substance abuse; and peer, community, and collective violence. It has been shown that considerable and prolonged stress in childhood has life-long consequences for a person's health and well-being. It can disrupt early brain development and compromise the functioning of the nervous and immune systems. Although ACEs increase a person's risk of certain health conditions and behaviors in adulthood, they do not guarantee them. With support, children who face adverse events can learn to manage their experiences and lead meaningful lives. In this book, we discuss ACEs in more detail, including the potential outcomes for people who experience them and methods of prevention.

Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resilience Book Excerpt:

Adverse childhood experiences, known as ACEs, have been shown to negatively impact an individual's health as an adult. While efforts to decrease children's exposure to these traumatic experiences are beneficial, they are not able to fully eliminate these experiences and do not address how to help children who have already been exposed. Resilience, which has been defined as managing and adapting to significant sources of trauma, has been thought to be a protective factor against the toxic stress of ACEs. While the relationship between ACEs and poor health outcomes has been established, the relationship between resilience and health outcomes is largely unknown. This study seeks to determine the association between resilience scores on a validated resilience questionnaire and health outcomes in adolescents. Looking specifically at body mass index, blood pressure, and depression scores on a validated depression screen we hypothesize that higher resilience scores will be associated with better health outcomes. In addition, we examine the relationship between ACE scores and resilience scores. If this validated resilience instrument is able to help predict health outcomes, this can direct development of intervention programs to build resilience in those living in ACE-heavy environments.
