THE ACE RESOURCE KIT
In my decades of study and practice I’ve learned just what a pervasive problem stress is in people’s lives. Below, I’ve compiled a few resources based on the ACE Study and some of the techniques I’ve developed to help treat my clients using mind-body healing. I hope you enjoy these resources, and that they allow you to find and connect with your inner voice.

ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES (ACE)
THE ACE STUDY
A 1994 Harvard study concluded that 60% to 90% of all doctor visits are stress-related. Also extensive research at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, California showed that the “chronic stress” caused by “adverse childhood experiences” in the family is far more prevalent than most medical doctors believe, and is highly correlated with a whole host of physical and emotional problems later in life, from obesity to alcoholism and depression.
IN CONVERSATION WITH DR. VINCENT FILETTI
Below is a conversation I had with Dr. Vincent Filetti discussing the ACE Study and his findings.
FIND YOUR ACE SCORE
The ACE Test was devised by Vincent J. Felitti, MD and Robert F. Anda MD, as part of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study mentioned above. Click the link below in order to download a PDF version of the ACE Test to find out your ACE Score. Take your time and give each answer some careful thought.
“GOING TO THE MOVIES” EXERCISE
This is a visual exercise I created to better incorporate my “Find Your Inner Voice” process. It is taken from my book, “Your Inner Voice.” I hope this helps you find a different perspective when dealing with your challenges, which is the first step in healing.
“OCEAN WAVES BREATHING” EXERCISE
This is an exercise I created simple enough to use with kids. It’s taken from my book, “Less Stress for Kids.” I think you’ll find that this helps both kids and adults alike.
I hope you’ve found these resources helpful. I invite you to explore my websites at drbrianalman.com and trusage.com where you will find more resources along your journey. I am working on some new content, so make sure you are subscribed to my Inner Voice Insider Email List, to be notified as new tools and exercises are released.
