A Critical Assessment of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study at 20 Years [sciencedirect.com]

Marianne Avari ·
This year marks the 20th anniversary of publication in this journal of the first of many articles on the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) research by Drs. Felitti, Anda, and colleagues. As we celebrate the impact of this seminal research, it is also imperative to assess critically its serious limitations: an unrepresentative study population and narrow operationalization of childhood adversity lead to undercounting adverse experiences and misrepresenting their social distribution.

It's More Than Pay: Striking Teachers Demand Counselors and Nurses [nytimes.com]

By Dana Goldstein, The New York Times, October 24, 2019 In a typical week, Adrienne Vaccarezza-Isla, a school counselor in Chicago, might help a dozen eighth graders apply to high schools across the city. Or try to convince a mother that her daughter, who had seen her get shot years earlier, should join a group for students dealing with trauma. Or work with sixth and seventh graders on time management. Even though she is the only counselor for 650 children at Avondale-Logandale Elementary...

Trauma-Informed Social Justice: Q&A with Dr. Bukuloa Ogunkua

Christine Cissy White ·
Cissy's Note: I work with people who challenge systems and policies, who reform or start non-profits, and who see hope and promise where others see despair or destruction. While some folks shake their heads or shrug indifferently in the face of injustice and suffering, others organize, mobilize, and channel their time and energy towards making a change. Maybe a physician hosts an annual conference bringing trauma-informed approaches to medical practice. Perhaps a woman shares ACEs 101...

West Africa ACEs CONNECTION: Chasing solutions for own ACE Score

Dr. Bukola Ogunkua ·
Even though I have excelled in practically all endeavors that I set out to do and have succeeded in new learning, I continued to have flash backs of certain events from my past and residual anger on certain things.

Robyn Brickel, M.A., LMFT ·
Adolescence awakens new emotions, social experiences and physical energy for many people. It’s often a time when young people try new things, make new friends, depend less on parents, and live more passionately. But as an adult, your role is still important.

Adolescence is also a time when some explore alcohol or drugs (such as heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and prescription medicine, among other...

Re: West Africa ACEs CONNECTION: Chasing solutions for own ACE Score

Sonia Ivie ·
Thank you Dr B. for all you are doing in the area of educating educators in Nigeria to be better informed on how to provide assistance and support to children who have experienced some form of trauma. One key area that struck me while reading the article is that no matter how old we become as adults, we will still have flashbacks if we have unresolved Adverse childhood experiences. I however have some challenges with interpreting the ACEs because some of the description do not seem to fit...

Alero Peace Molua ·
I have learnt a lot from you Dr. B and now I am more empathetic with people who are going through trauma, have a few ACEs scores and having PTSD. I realised that almost everyone has had one of these experiences or another. Careful listening and observations will help in identifying children that might need help early enough.
