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.
We discuss ACEs and school performance. ACEs may affect outcomes in adulthood through disrupted neurodevelopment
In this Research Roundup Summer 2021 edition, we’re addressing the recall bias in measuring ACEs in many ACEs studies.
We discuss ACEs score strengths, limitations, and misapplications to determine how we can best use and interpret the ACEs test and framework.
Does the timing of ACEs exposure matter and how? We discuss this topic in our Research Roundup May 2021 edition.
ACEs patterns and their impact. Different ACEs can be grouped in meaningful ways, and different ACEs have different risks in later life.
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.
