HAVE YOU BEEN EXPOSED TO THESE 10 ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES?

16 Feb 2017

Tags: PTSD , Childhood Trauma , Quiz

When parents are absent, neglectful, abusive, or fail to provide a safe, stable, and loving environment, children grow up to be adults with problems.

The ACE Test is short, a mere 10 questions. But it is considered a gold-standard assessment tool in determining things like how well your career may go, if you’ll be addicted to drugs and alcohol, and even how long you’ll live.

Read More and take the test.
 
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control)-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and later-life health and well-being. 

The study has demonstrated a direct association between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and health and social problems as an adult. The data from the ACE Test is taken from tens of thousands of participants across the United States over a period of nearly two decades. 

Ready to take the test? Let's begin. 
*Answer yes or no for each of the following questions. Each yes answer is one point.
Prior to your 18th birthday:
  1. Did a parent or other adult in the household often or very often… Swear at you, insult you, put you down, or humiliate you? or Act in a way that made you afraid that you might be physically hurt? Y/N
  2. Did a parent or other adult in the household often or very often… Push, grab, slap, or throw something at you? or Ever hit you so hard that you had marks or were injured? Y/N
  3. Did an adult or person at least 5 years older than you ever… Touch or fondle you or have you touch their body in a sexual way? or Attempt or actually have oral, anal, or vaginal intercourse with you? Y/N
  4. Did you often or very often feel that … No one in your family loved you or thought you were important or special? or Your family didn’t look out for each other, feel close to each other, or support each other? Y/N
  5. Did you often or very often feel that … You didn’t have enough to eat, had to wear dirty clothes, and had no one to protect you? or Your parents were too drunk or high to take care of you or take you to the doctor if you needed it? Y/N
  6. Were your parents ever separated or divorced? Y/N
  7. Was your mother or stepmother:
    Often or very often pushed, grabbed, slapped, or had something thrown at her? or Sometimes, often, or very often kicked, bitten, hit with a fist, or hit with something hard? or Ever repeatedly hit over at least a few minutes or threatened with a gun or knife? Y/N
  8. Did you live with anyone who was a problem drinker or alcoholic, or who used street drugs? Y/N
  9. Was a household member depressed or mentally ill, or did a household member attempt suicide?  Y/N                   
  10. Did a household member go to prison? Y/N​

Now that you have your ACE Test score, what does it mean?

Unfortunately, as you score higher on the ACE Test, you also have a higher risk of social and mental health problems and even disease.

Does this mean you need therapy? A 12 step group? Group therapy? What about in-patient? EMDR Eye Movement Therapy?

​The bad news is that according to research from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), if you score high on the ACE Test the answer is probably yes.
The Virtual EMDR Eye Movement Therapy Program can help remove many of the symptoms that may come along with having a high ACE Test Score. You can sign up here

As your ACE score increases, so does the risk for the following medical, social, and mental health problems:
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Asthma
  • Mental distress
  • Depression
  • Smoking
  • Disability
  • Reported income
  • Unemployment
  • Lowered educational attainment
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
And for those with an ACE score of 4 or more, the likelihood of depression increases 460%, pulmonary lung disease increases 390%, hepatitis 240%, and suicide an astounding 1220%.

It’s important to note that just because you have a high ACE score doesn’t mean you’re doomed. You may have had many positive experiences in your life that balance out the bad things that happened.

One of the leads dislodged but it was the one that goes to the chamber that works better than the other and I've written off 9 vehicles 3 of which should've killed me yet left me unscathed, hitchhiked 700 km one way to and from about 15 times (30 trips approx) when 12 to 14 and I'm still here. .. is there am entity looking after me ya think? But wait! There's more! ! To find out, tune in next time for the title of often requested book I've yet to write!

Im not sure if I understand your question Rae. You scored high on the ACE Test? Therapy can help, or EMDR Therapy, or group treatment. There are lots of things you can do to feel better.

After reading what i see as much negative aspect on another's upbringing which has nothing to do with the outcome of their self fulfillment unless accepted and refusal to better their outlook on the happenings that were beyond their control to see that they aren't obligated to live out what has been bright forth as "inevitable " or absolute. ... I'm thankful for the shortcomings ice endured, they make me realize just how strong one can be. . Obviously with my score, i shouldn't feel this way. .but who be you or anyone else to tell me how i SHOULD feel about my own past? Thank you for getting back so promptly, it shows dedication to your dictation At least you're doing what makes you feel better.

It's not me who says these things are related to life-outcome Rae. It's the Centers for Disease control. The data from this test is based on the CDC researching and using the test on tens-of-thousands of participants.

HI, if you sign up for the free week, are you notified at the end of the week, if you want ton continue and is there a time limit, if you signed up for 3months and don't need to continue when that is up. I've tried a lot of different therapy modalities and no of them have helped much, with what I've come to understand as developmental and attachment trauma, which is probably the route of my issues. I'mean part of a 12 step fellowship that has been great for stopping drink and drugs but not so good for the early traumas. Cheers

Hello. If you sign up, it is up to you to cancel before the week or the 3 months or whatever is expired. There is not time limit on sessions though. You can do as many sessions as you want while you are a member of Virtual EMDR. If you have more questions contact us at customerservice@virtualemdr.com

My 12-step journey started in Al-anon which led me to Adult Children of Alcoholics (and other dysfunction) where I felt like I was "home". It helped me understand why I am who I am/do what I do and provides support and resources to work toward changing my maladaptive traits as long as I'm committed to doing so. I highly recommend it; it may not be a cure-all but for me it's a big part of the solution. I think people can benefit from using more than one approach, treatment, etc, so I'm intetested in EMDR as a way to hopefully progress more quickly. Good luck to you!

I totally agree with you Simon. Virtual EMDR did not write the test though. It was the US Centers for Disease Control. Please write them and mention this! cdc.gov

If i may, i would like to answer Simon. The reason "mother" is used in #7 is because mother was the person who was mentioned most common by a group of about 300 Kaiser members. All 10 questions were taken directly from the trauma this group experienced. Under "other types of childhood trauma" you will find mother against father, siblings, grandmother against grandfather etc. Thanks!

I have come to terms with some of my abuse and abusers but im left with adrenal fatigue which tells me there is more, It could well be pre verble or even stuffed burried deep,I have done exstensive work every time there has been a major incidence in my life, This time its my best friend that has dies and i am struggling tocome to terms with it, She was by far the closest womwn i have ever encounted in my life and she taughted me so much about authenticity standing up for ones rights in a peaceful way and so much more a mentor as well for my kids growing up!! She was the big sister that i never felt infior to she held me in great regard as did i her!! The loss!!

Hi Jeff, Do me a favor? Look at my account and tell me my "status" with you. I've signed up for 3 months and also for your free week. Does this mean I am registered with you for 3 months + 1 week? Do you automatically renew subscribers if they fail to cancel? I wish your program had a log section allowing me to keep track and make notes for each session. I am so disorganized myself I find it hard to set this up and use it consistently. Thanks, Bob Quilitch Reno, NV
