Vince Felitti ran the ACE studies in the mid-1990’s. This 13-minute video explains the study and findings. According to Felitti the study shows that ACEs are “the leading determinant of what happens to the health and social well-being of a nation’s population.”

Adverse childhood experiences are far more common than you might suspect, and cause damage that can last a lifetime.

  1. Of course, it is also possible for medical problems to result in an anxiety attack without the presence of anxiety disorder at all.
    By finding the different emotions and behaviors that are
    at the panic attack roots, the psychologist is able to assist a patient
    with successfully attaining this change. Nature designed your body to protect you from danger
    and is equipped with an automatic response to aid in your survival.

      You are right. The environment triggers responses that can lead to positive outcomes like survival. Sometimes, if it is triggered too much, it can lead to more serious problems.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to
    your site? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit
    from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks!
