It's very simple. An individual’s ACE score is calculated based upon summing the occurrence of any given ACE which occurred at least once. No matter how frequently an individual may have experienced a particular early traumatic event (e.g. witnessing violence against their mother), they will only receive a “1” for that particular ACE if they were exposed to it at least once from birth to age 18. The number of different ACEs a given individual was exposed to is then summed so the potential ACE score ranges from 0 to 10, where 0 indicates the individual was never exposed to any of the potentially traumatic events while 10 indicates they were exposed to all of them at least once during their childhood to teenage years. As has been discussed, the ACE operationalization does not include the timing, frequency, duration, or severity of exposure to trauma, but it does enable researchers to assess the impact of cumulative exposure to a variety of traumatic events. This is important as ACEs are highly correlated to deleterious health and behavioral outcomes among both the general population and justice-involved youth in particular.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
