Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Please elaborate on the following as you complete your discussion:
Complete the 10-question Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Questionnaire: Finding Your ACE Score (Links to an external site.) measure for the client you selected in the Week 1 Choose Your Client discussion. Complete it based on what you have been able to find out about your client’s childhood and whether your client experienced any of the events detailed in the questionnaire. What is your client’s ACES score? Keep in mind that the higher the score, the greater the likelihood of negative outcomes in adulthood.
Evaluate your client’s ACES score using examples of trauma experienced in childhood. If your client had no childhood trauma, or you were unable to locate any credible information about your client to answer the ACES questions, please provide general examples of the types of adverse childhood experiences that may lead to negative outcomes as adults.

Use correct APA format
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
