In this week’s sleep science audio abstract we take a look at the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). ACE represents substantial threats to public health and affect about 58% of youth in the US. In addition to their acute effects such as injury and physical trauma, ACEs are associated with an increased risk of several negative health outcomes throughout the life course. Emerging evidence suggests sleep disorders may be one such outcome, but existing studies have not been systematically reviewed and summarized. This systematic review summarizes the evidence concerning the relationship between ACEs and sleep disorders and disturbances, with a focus on adult women.
