A.C.E stands for Adverse Childhood Event.
10 types of childhood events, which result as trauma, are measured in the ACE Study. Five are personal — physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical and emotional neglect. Five are related to other family members: witnessing a parent’s addiction, witnessing a victim of domestic violence, a family member in jail, the loss of a parent through divorce, death, or abandonment. Also, being amongst someone with a mental illness imacts your ACE score.
P.C.E stands for Positive Childhood Event
Although PCE’s cannot overwrite traumatic events, it can be beneficial to recognise them.
