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.
