The ACES score is a measure of the number of childhood traumas you experienced involving abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. According to the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, the rougher your childhood, the higher your score is likely to be and the higher your risk for later health problems. Your ACES score can tell you a lot about how unconscious and unresolved childhood traumas are impacting your adult physical and mental health.
