CIAFV November Member’s Meeting
November 18, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+7
Bill Smiley, MSW, RSW the manager, Therapy & Counselling Services at The Family Centre
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) survey was developed to look at how childhood experiences impacted people’s physical and mental health later in life. The survey was initially part of a research project in San Diego, CA. The questionnaire was filled out in Dr’s offices and correlated with health records. The findings were dramatic.
We use the ACE questionnaire at The Family Centre with all the agency’s clients. The focus of the conversation quickly changes from “what is wrong with me?” to “what happened to you?”
