Description of Work
Every single human has a past. We have all suffered our own share of trauma.
Throughout the physical therapy program, we have discussed trauma-informed care. During our first semester, we reviewed the Advanced Childhood Experience (ACE) scale and took down our own scores. For those who have experienced a more traumatic childhood, their ACE scores are higher. A high ACE score indicates a higher risk for later health problems as an adult. As future and current clinicians, we need to take this score into consideration during evaluations and when we develop a plan of care.
Trauma does not disappear. I have worked on my own for many years, but it continues to be a process. I am proud of the work I have done, but it has not been easy.
