Adverse Childhood Experiences Training (ACES)

Arizona Youth Partnership is proud to present Adverse Childhood Experiences Training (ACES)

What is an ACE?

An adverse childhood experience is trauma that occurs before age 18.

Recurrent physical abuse

Recurrent emotional abuse

Contact Sexual abuse

Alcohol and/or drug abuse in the household.

An incarcerated household member

Household member who was depressed, mental ill, institutionalized or suicidal

Mother who was treated violently

One or no parent

Emotional or physical neglect

When adults were asked if they grew up with exposure to any of the above, the higher the number of exposure had a direct correlation to certain health, social, and economic risks as an adult.

The ACE study suggests that certain childhood experiences are major risk factors for the leading causes of illness and death in the US.
