  • Know what can be done to prevent ACEs
  • Know who should be screening for ACEs
  • A Shared Language for Trauma-Informed Practice and Adverse Childhood

*World Health Organization Adverse Childhood Experiences International Questionnaire (ACE-IQ) Question-by-Question Guide.  World Health Organization guidelines for interviewers on how to ask the ACE questions.

ACE-IQ should always be integrated into broader health surveys. Although data about adversities on their own may be useful for some purposes, the real value of ACE-IQ lies in demonstrating the associations between early exposures to ACEs and subsequent risk behaviours and health outcomes. It is only by integrating ACE-IQ into broader health surveys that such associations can be measured.

World Health Organization

Adverse Childhood Experiences International Questionnaire (ACE-IQ)

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) refer to some of the most intensive and frequently occurring sources of stress that children may suffer early in life. Such experiences include multiple types of abuse; neglect; violence between parents or caregivers; other kinds of serious household dysfunction such as alcohol and substance abuse; and peer, community and collective violence.

It has been shown that considerable and prolonged stress in childhood has life-long consequences for a person's health and well-being. It can disrupt early brain development and compromise functioning of the nervous and immune systems. In addition because of the behaviours adopted by some people who have faced ACEs, such stress can lead to serious problems such as alcoholism, depression, eating disorders, unsafe sex, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.

The ACE International Questionnaire (ACE-IQ) is intended to measure ACEs in all countries, and the association between them and risk behaviours in later life. ACE-IQ is designed for administration to people aged 18 years and older. Questions cover family dysfunction; physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect by parents or caregivers; peer violence; witnessing community violence, and exposure to collective violence.

Findings from ACE-IQ surveys can be of great value in advocating for increased investments to reduce childhood adversities, and to inform the design of prevention programmes.
