The Adverse Childhood Experience Study (ACES) is the largest and first research study that established a direct association between childhood trauma and the increased risks for physical and mental health problems in adulthood. The study found that the greater the number of adverse childhood experiences the greater the possibility of disabilities and dysfunction in adult life. Resource parents will learn how to reduce the impact of childhood trauma and toxic stress, thereby improving the health of children in their care and future generations.
