Minnesota high school screens students for ACEs to develop trauma-informed education. By Jane Ellen Stevens.
I learned about the ACE study in 2010 and felt it was a major key that could unlock some of the ills common in all societies across the world.

Thanks to Vincent J. Felitti, M.D. and Robert Anda, M.D. for their groundbreaking work on the study. Thanks to Jane Stevens for this article.
Now, it is time to come up with solutions for healing the effects of ACEs. There are many modalities for healing–the important thing is to find one that fits each individual. Some people are comfortable with psychotherapy, some prefer reiki, the Emotion Code protocol developed by Bradley Nelson, D.O. is one that seems to work well and “stick.”
When trauma is experienced during childhood, the scars are carried for a lifetime. The “charge” of the trauma can be neutralized so that the person doesn’t have to keep cycling it, but the way to such “neutralization” must be found on a case-by-case basis.
I wish for healing…on the part of all humans in the world.
