The ACES Test: Unveiling the Link Between Childhood Trauma and Adult Well-being
In this week's episode of "Self-Healing After Trauma," we dive into the important topic of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Test (ACES). Join us as we discuss the impact of childhood trauma on our adult lives and the groundbreaking research conducted by the CDC and Kaiser.
🌟 Key Takeaways from this episode: 🌟
1️⃣ Understanding Trauma: The first step in healing trauma is recognizing and acknowledging the traumas we have experienced, especially in childhood. The ACES test helps us assess and gain clarity on the traumas we may have overlooked or didn't realize were traumatic.
2️⃣ Link to Chronic Illness and Mental Health: The ACES study reveals that childhood trauma can lead to adult-onset chronic diseases, mental illness, and an increased risk of violence. Having awareness of our ACES score can empower us to address and mitigate these risks.
3️⃣ Hope and Healing: While a high ACES score increases the risk of adverse health outcomes, it doesn't guarantee that we will definitely face these challenges. Recognizing our traumas and seeking healing can provide hope, compassion, and motivation for moving forward in our healing journey.
Take the FREE ACES Test to gain insights for healing from past traumas and creating a brighter future.
