Reply to "An "Official" List of ACEs?"

Janie, I agree with Roberto - what is considered "traumatic" is defined by the individual and is impacted by many factors. I have seen Dr. Nadine Burke Harris explain that the original 10 ACEs are the ones that are most studied but that we have growing evidence that supports that any source of toxic stress - especially during key developmental periods - will have similar effects on the body's neurological, endocrine, and immune systems if the child does not have adequate buffering elements (resilience) in their lives.
