At Dawn, we provide treatment measures to assist in fully understanding symptoms, to guide treatment, and to show the effectiveness of treatment. The following assessments are offered:
We screen clients for exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma. ACEs (traumatic events that occur before a child reaches 18) are connected to a person’s health and behavior outcomes later in life. The higher the ACEs score, the higher the risk of disease, social, and emotional problems.
The Adverse Childhood Experiences Questionnaire (ACE Q) is a 10-item self-report measure developed to identify childhood experiences of abuse and neglect
The Trauma Symptom Checklist is a measure of symptomatic distress in adults arising from childhood or adult traumatic experiences. It measures aspects of post-traumatic stress as well as other symptoms found in some traumatized individuals.
This clinician-administered instrument provides a method to evaluate the frequency and intensity of individual symptoms, as well as the impact of the symptoms on social and occupational functioning.
