The ACEs Indiana Coalition is comprised of hundreds of professionals from around the state of Indiana. With varying backgrounds, each Master Trainer brings a unique perspective to the initiative. The ACEs Indiana Coalition is dedicated to growing awareness on Adverse Childhood Experiences and building self-healing communities. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events in a child’s life that can have negative and lasting effects on a person’s physical, mental and emotional health. In addition, self-healing communities focus on the implementation of trauma-informed interventions, local policy improvements and paradigm shifts in how we assist children and families. By doing so, we can help prevent the accumulation of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). 

Proper Use of the ACEs Questionnaire

“The ACE questionnaire was designed to research—not screen—the relationship between childhood adversities and health and social outcomes. Therefore, the authors, along with other colleagues, are concerned about potential misapplication of ACE questionnaires and the ACE score for community-based screening and decision making about treatment or services.”
Dr. Robert Anda

The ACEs Indiana Coalition is dedicated to spreading awareness on the proper use of the ACEs questionnaire. The coalition has partnered with the Commission on Improving the Status of Children to create a Position Statement on the proper use of the questionnaire. (Read more here)
