Preventing ACEs

Overview:
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are
potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood.
ACEs can include violence, abuse, and growing
up in a family with mental health or substance use
problems. Toxic stress from ACEs can change brain
development and affect how the body responds to
stress. ACEs are linked to chronic health problems,
mental illness, and substance misuse in adulthood.
However, ACEs can be prevented.
Preventing ACEs can help children and
adults thrive and potentially:
PROBLEM:
Adverse Childhood Experiences
impact lifelong health and
opportunities.
•
Lower risk for conditions like depression,
asthma, cancer, and diabetes in adulthood.
•
Reduce risky behaviors like smoking, and
heavy drinking.
ACEs are common and the effects can
add up over time.
•
Improve education and job potential.
•
•
Stop ACEs from being passed from one
generation to the next.
61% of adults had at least one ACE and
16% had 4 or more types of ACEs.
•
Females and several racial/ethnic
minority groups were at greater risk for
experiencing 4 or more ACEs.
•
Many people do not realize that exposure
to ACEs is associated with increased risk
for health problems across the lifespan.
Preventing ACEs could reduce a large number of health conditions.

Potential reduction of negative outcomes in adulthood
THE WAY FORWARD
-4%
SOURCE: BRFSS 2015-2017, 25 states, CDC Vital Signs, November 2019.
• Improve access to high-quality
childcare by expanding eligibility,
activities offered, and family
involvement.
• Use effective social and economic
supports that address financial
hardship and other conditions that
put families at risk for ACEs.
• Enhance connections to caring
adults and increase parents’ and
youth skills to manage emotions
and conflicts using approaches in
schools and other settings.
EVERYONE CAN:
• Recognize challenges that families
face and offer support and
encouragement to reduce stress.
Raising awareness about ACEs can help:
•
Change how people think about the causes of ACEs and who
could help prevent them.
•
Shift the focus from individual responsibility to community
solutions.
•
Reduce stigma around seeking help with parenting challenges or
for substance misuse, depression, or suicidal thoughts.
•
Promote safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments
where children live, learn, and play.
• Support community programs
and policies that provide safe and
healthy conditions for all children
and families.

Part #2- Layout the Content
Facts or Pieces of Information Relevant to the Topic
✓ Some of the crimes that young adults and teenagers commit include gang fights, smoking
cigarettes, having sexual relations, stealing money from family, damaging property,
skipping classes, and using drugs.
✓ Juveniles’ delinquent behaviors vary in regions since environmental and socio-economic
factors drive the patterns and causes of delinquency (Panezai et al., 2019).
✓ Juveniles have higher incentives for high-risk behavior types and low-yield involvement
represented by offenses such as burglary, vandalism, and robbery.
✓ Affinities for carrying out wrongdoings correlate with an increment in seriousness among
juveniles as one may advance from minor types of crime to serious ones (Kessler 2020).
✓ “When age groups are examined, the highest (20%+) poverty populations generate nearly
three-fourths of 14 to17 year-olds violent crime arrests” (Males & Brown, 2014, p. 15).
✓ “25.6% of arrests occur in the 20-24% poverty bracket; 47.2% in the 25+% poverty
bracket” (Males & Brown, 2014, p.15).
✓ “Where teenagers and emerging adults display typical middle-aged demographics, they
display ‘middle-aged’ violent crime rates; where ages 40 to 69 have typical teenage
demographics, they display ‘teenaged’ violent crime levels.” (Males & Brown, 2014,
p.17).
✓ The general trends indicate that if the new types of juvenile delinquency are allowed to
our communities’ scales, especially those with significant chances of offending adults, the
trends can reverse, regardless of the applied scaling technique.
Recommendations for how we can Address the Issue
2
➢ Engaging in parent-child interaction training programs that teach parents parenting skills.
➢ Implementing bullying prevention programs
➢ Introducing juvenile delinquency prevention programs in the juvenile justice system.
➢ Reducing risks and developing protective factors among peers, families, communities,
and schools.
➢ Introducing education and recreation programs to help families raise healthy children by
teaching them the effects of early sex, gangs, drugs, and weapons (ImpactLaw. (n.d.)).

Final Project Part 1: Topic Proposal
Juvenile Delinquency
Lifespan and Human Development
Essence Hunter-Barron
7/06/2022
The issue being discussed in this paper is “Juvenile delinquency” and the psychology behind it. The
paper will discuss the crimes that young adults and teenagers commit and the reason behind why they commit
said crimes. Statistics state that approximately every crime, in nearly all nations have an arrest rate that proves
15- to 17-year-olds are arrested twice that of those over 18. This statistic does not include crimes such as fraud,
forgery, or embezzlement. This problem may not be one that can be solved completely, however, I do believe
there are ways that it can be improved. At the end of the day, we must note that crime is destined to happen,
but it would be wonderful if we could reduce the rate for adolescent children.
I think this problem is important to me personally because my brother found himself in this category a
few years ago. I lost my older brother due to his own delinquent behavior. While I have not yet fully recovered
from his lost; I do have a younger brother that I see trying his hardest to not follow in my order’s footsteps. He is
not as tough as I wish he could be though, considering he has also made bad choices like that of my older. I find
this topic to be an interesting one that most would say can easily be blamed on the parents. I strongly disagree
to that because me and my other 4 siblings have chosen a different path. Others argue that it is strongly related
solely on the environment, but I find that hard to agree with as well. My other 4 siblings and I were all raised in
the same environment. In this paper I will go further into my viewpoint about the matter. I have a belief that
Juvenile Delinquency is caused by psychological development matter more than the parenting styles and
environment. I do, however, think that parenting styles and the environment play a vital role as well.
Furthermore, I believe this issue is important to society because of the problems it causes in the communities.
The main crime that Juveniles commit is theft. This directly affects everyone who they are stealing from no
matter how big or small the item. Nevertheless, these crimes continue a pattern in most neighborhoods.
Younger children will see their older siblings or peers committing crimes and will be influenced to do so too. This
is a pattern that has long existed, yet I believe can still be changed. Now is the perfect time to end generation
curses and get the help that is needed in order to reduce the juvenile delinquency rate and stereotypes that go
along with them. The textbook states, “prevalence and incidence of criminal action is higher in adolescence.
Arrests are more likely with boys and youth of minority ethnic groups.”
This issue is related to the adolescent period of lifespan. During this period Adolescent
psychosocial development is a search for a consistent understanding of oneself. Self-expression and
self-concept become increasingly important at puberty. Each young person wants to know, “Who am I?”
According to the textbook, this problem is affected by psychology in the following ways, “Slowly
maturing limbic system and intuition instead of analysis.” Other reasons include, “Heightened striatum
activity in reward situations; Neurological sensitivity; deeply felt peer acceptance or rejection and
Ventral striatum less likely to signal caution (inhibition).”
I will start by describing the different Kinds of teenage lawbreakers such as Adolescence-limited
offenders and Life-course-persistent offenders. Then we can go into the background or reasoning behind the
acts. The textbook says, “ to reduce adolescent crime we must notice early behavior that predicts lawbreaking
and change patterns before puberty. These can include, Learning disabilities, school failures, neighborhood
influence, household influences, mental health issues, etc.
