Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences

  • Oakland Family Services - Berkley office 2351 W. 12 Mile Road Berkley, MI United States (map)

In the past couple of decades, there has been an explosion of new understanding – beginning with the Adverse Childhood Experience, or “ACE” Study – about how and why adversity and trauma can reliably predict risks for mental, physical, behavioral health and productivity in the population. This is great news! What’s predictable is preventable – because of recent discoveries in neuroscience, epigenetics, epidemiology, and resilience studies, we can understand how protection, prevention, and resilience promotion can profoundly improve health, safety & productivity, and reduce public and private costs now and for generations to come.
