ACEs or Adverse Childhood Experiences are the negative things that happened to or around us during our developmental years. Things like Emotional neglect, physical or sexual abuse, violence in the home, mental illness of a caregiver, etc. There are ten listed on the official ACE test, which was created by the Kaiser Institute in the 90’s, but it only includes the ten most common adverse experiences. There are many more. And sadly, most ACEs happen to a child before the age of three, according to studies done since the ACE test was created. ACEs repeatedly trigger a child’s fight-or-flight stress response. This occurs because emotions associated with coping with ACEs, like anger, fear, frustration, shame, humiliation, anxiety, for example, keep triggering the fight-or-flight stress response.
As the child grows up, they often begin to develop social, emotional and cognitive impairments; some are mild, below the radar, and others are severe.
The child develops coping mechanisms, or adaptations, to survive his or her environment. And unfortunately, these adaptations are most often brought into adulthood and remain until a person goes through trauma recovery
