What other adversities did you face?
Childhood Domestic Violence doesn’t typically happen in isolation. If you grew up with CDV, there is a good chance that you also experienced one or more of the other Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE).
The Number of ACE’s Foretells the Future
The ACE Study discovered that not only do these ACE’s impact a life, but they often co-occur – where there’s one adversity, there’s often more. According to researcher Jeff Edleson, more than 50% of those who experience CDV experience 5 or more other adversities as well.
