Re: How do you go about getting an ACE study for your State? We need one In Michigan!!!

Kathy Hentcy ·
By "ACEs Study," do you mean the full-blown type of study conducted by Drs. Felitti and Anda? Or do you mean collection of the ACEs data for your state? If it's the former, I don't know. If it's the latter, I can offer some suggestions. Your public health department would be lthe place to start. They conduct the yearly behavioral risk factor surveillance system surveys, and they would have to add the ACE module to their survey. Some helpful information on this: As you may know, the BRFSS is...

Re: Improving the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study Scale

Former Member ·
But if you are asked, "What is your evidence behind your screening tool?" Ask "What is the evidence behind yours?"(for example for pediatric bipolar). You will find that the DSM is a group of academic doctors getting together to decide these symptoms mean this diagnosis. The evidence is slim at best. They can give not genetic, epigenetic, demographic or you name it ... answers....However an association called "The Directors of State Mental Health Providers asked them to put Developmental...

Kathy, I very much appreciate the clarification of concerns, and objections you noted above. I wish that I had seen it sooner. I've had periodic discussions with one Vermont House member-who's a retired School Principal- and he didn't clarify the concerns as well as your post above. I believe you have articulated a reasonable argument as it applies to both the 2013 Vermont House Bill 762, and use of the ACE questions in the annual State BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Survey Study)-even though...

Re: Indiana ACEs Groups

Laura Pinhey ·
Hi, Elaine, I just now saw this Ask the Community. I live in south-central Indiana. Just a couple of days ago I met a registered pediatric nurse who presented about ACEs at a conference in Monroe County. She is very knowledgeable about ACEs and incorporates ACEs science into her work with children and families. She was also active in something called the "Integrated Health Advocacy Program" through the local hospital, but I am unclear if this program is still in operation (I think the...
