Chosen topic for the simulation: The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study)

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study) is a topic that has to grow to be a part of my passion. I often wonder how, why, and what cause people to behavior the way they do. Also, I often wonder why negative behavior seems to naturally occurs in young children and positive behavior have to be taught. I found as a teacher I  had to teach positive behavior, yet negative behavior appeared to be a part of the student’s DNA.

What is  Adverse Childhood Experiences?

The relationship of health risk behavior and disease in adulthood to the  breadth of exposure to childhood emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, and household  dysfunction during childhood has not previously been described
