What Is The Childhood Trauma Test?

The ACE childhood trauma test for adults is a score summing up the extent of difficult childhood experiences. The ACE test questions for childhood trauma include a series of 10 questions about various incidents that occur during the earlier stages of life.

According to the test, the rougher your childhood, the higher you’ll score on the quiz. This, in turn, has implications for experiences well into adulthood. For example, this may manifest in symptoms that range from headaches and heart disease to depression and substance abuse.

  1. I took the test and I scored 0..The reason being is they never asked if one of your parents had died, which was my childhood trauma. I personally think that question should be asked on their test. I lost my father at 11 not from divorce but from death and it affected me all my childhood.
