The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study) presents the effect of childhood trauma on adult life. The study was conducted by Kaiser Permanente and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States. With an average age of 57, all of the 17,337 study participants had jobs and good health care. Even though life seemed promising on the surface, the study showed that compared to those who haven’t had any adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), participants who had undergone at least four ACEs were associated with a 700% increase in alcoholism. Alarmingly, those having more than six ACEs were associated with a 3000% increase in attempted suicide. Such facts will likely lead to the creation of a cycle of violence and an increase in the number of victims among newer and future generations. According to WHO’s report, one in six maltreated boys and girls go on to become violent offenders ; and one in eight sexually abused boys go on to become sexual offenders.
