I am so grateful for this post!  I am a pediatrician going to volunteer at the Texas border in September and have been working on a one-page information sheet on trauma in children for the organization I will be working with.  I have had a hard time finding things written in basic spanish so the above list is invaluable.  Thank you for compiling!

Hello Morgan,

I would like to know if you have information about the methodology used for the Spanish translation of the ACEs questionnaire?
Do you know if this Spanish version is associated with some research article?
I would like very much to be able to use it in an research project.

By the way, it's a great blog with resources in Spanish !!!

Thanks,

Andrés
