Adverse Childhood Experiences Scale – R4

The ACES-R4 (Adverse Childhood Experiences Scale – R4) is a refinement of the original scale. The original multipart questions are divided into individual and more specific questions. Additionally the yes-no response options are replaced with a Likert scale to document reoccurrence. The questionnaire simply asks whether or not events occurred and is not a formal psychometric assessment. Some patterns of responses have been found to be associated with risk for mental health conditions among adults. The ACES-R4 may assist in starting conversations about childhood events or suggest background for identified conditions.
