Bonus Content: Universal Screening for Adverse Childhood Experiences
May 21, 2020 Season 2 Episode 10
National Children's Alliance / David Finkelhor

Today’s episode is a bit of bonus content for you. Adverse childhood experiences—also known as ACEs—can have lifelong effects. But does that mean we should screen everyone for ACEs? Recently, we spoke to Dr. David Finkelhor, from the Crimes Against Children Research Center and the University of New Hampshire, about the change in rates of abuse and neglect over time. If you listened to that episode, “Bad News Is a Story; Good News Is a Statistic,” what you didn’t hear was the conversation we had about the idea of universal screening for ACEs. Would such screening actually help? If not, what would? We spoke for just a few minutes on the topic, but we think you’ll find it interesting.

Topics in this episode:

  • When screening works best (1:28)
  • Our under-resourced behavioral health system (7:23)
  • Our next episode (11:01)
