Abstract: 

The Center for Health Care Strategies produced this brief as a technical assistance tool to help providers screen for exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma among adult and pediatric patients. The brief draws from the findings of a multi-site demonstration pilot study called Advancing Trauma-Informed Care (ATC). The ATC study sought to identify trauma-informed methods for the health care sector. (author abstract modified)
