Addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences in Scotland

21st June 2016

The Scottish Public Health Network (ScotPHN) has published a report looking at Addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) in Scotland.

ScotPHN_logoThe aim of the ‘Polishing the Diamonds’ report is to give an overview of ACEs and to provide an insight into the following questions:

  1. What does the term Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) mean?
  2. What harm dose being exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences cause?
  3. How does being exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences cause harm?
  4. Are there some ACEs that have more of a detrimental effect than others?
  5. Are some people more likely to be affected by ACEs than others?
  6. How common are ACEs and can we measure how many people are affected in Scotland?
  7. What is the economic impact of ACEs in Scotland?
  8. What can be done about Adverse Childhood Experiences?

A number of areas for possible Public Health action / intervention are identified in the report for further discussion.
