Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
A landmark study between the Center for Disease Control & Prevention and Kaiser Permanente’s Health Appraisal Clinic in San Diego found that adults had adverse health effects that were linked to their childhood experiences (Felitti, Anda,& Nordenberg et al., 1998). This case study reviewed the data collected from six individuals who identified they had adverse childhood experiences. These six individuals provided data through three surveys: Find Your ACE Score Calculator, Protective Factors Survey, and an original survey. The results from this research suggests that the six week parent training does increase parental level of ACES knowledge, decreases parental stress, and increases parental knowledge of child development.
