**Ted Bundy** is my client.
Prior to starting this discussion, please explore Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) (Links to an external site.), then read Take the ACE Quizâ€”and Learn What It Does and Does Not Mean (Links to an external site.)
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Please elaborate on the following as you complete your discussion:
- Complete the 10-question Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Questionnaire: Finding Your ACE Score (Links to an external site.) measure for the client you selected in the Week 1 Choose Your Client discussion. Complete it based on what you have been able to find out about your clientâ€™s childhood and whether your client experienced any of the events detailed in the questionnaire. What is your clientâ€™s ACES score? Keep in mind that the higher the score, the greater the likelihood of negative outcomes in adulthood.
- Evaluate your clientâ€™s ACES score using examples of trauma experienced in childhood. If your client had no childhood trauma, or you were unable to locate any credible information about your client to answer the ACES questions, please provide general examples of the types of adverse childhood experiences that may lead to negative outcomes as adults.
- How does childhood trauma influence criminality in adulthood? Why should the community be concerned about minimizing adverse childhood experiences?
