This workshop will introduce the Adverse Childhood Experiences Questionnaire (ACEs) and describe how it has illuminated the enduring social, emotional, academic, health, and life outcome effects of childhood adversity and trauma. A more recent study was conducted in the schools (Fletcher-Janzen & Harrington, in press) that has linked the abundance of knowledge gained from the ACEs studies to more psychometrically sound screening instruments that are standardized, norm-referenced and commonly used in educational settings. The results of the study are geared towards assisting School Psychologists in identifying and assisting students with early childhood trauma.
