Welcome to our Research Roundup. Each month, we publish a short review of recently published papers that better our understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). We cover scientific articles about the contexts in which ACEs are more (and less) likely to occur, how ACEs are related to health and well-being, and how we might intervene to prevent ACEs or reduce their negative impacts.
This month’s column focuses on how the distribution of ACEs is context-dependent: ACEs vary by space, time, and contextual factors.
How ACEs affect reproductive trajectories in women who are pregnant, as well as the role of social support in improving birth outcomes.
Parental Adverse Childhood Experiences. Researchers examined a wide range of health outcomes in kids whose parents were exposed to ACEs.
Adverse Childhood Experiences were associated with functional limitations and dementia in two studies of older Japanese adults
Maternal depression is linked to poor outcomes and mothers who have experienced ACEs in childhood may be at higher risk of depression.
