Research shows that adverse events experienced during childhood (i.e., adverse childhood experiences [ACEs]) are problematic, but few studies have examined race differences in the prevalence and

Adverse Childhood Experiences and Criminal Extremity: New Evidence for Sexual Homicide

Exposure to violence, victimization, and total adverse childhood experiences increased the odds of sexual homicide in adjusted models and intensified in models adjusted for childhood enuresis, cruelty to animals, parental abandonment, deviant sexual behaviors, poor self‐image, and sexual problems.

The graded relationship of the ACE score to 18 different outcomes in multiple domains theoretically parallels the cumulative exposure of the developing brain to the stress response with resulting impairment in multiple brain structures and functions.
