Researchers have well-established prevalence rates of trauma among vulnerable youth. However, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) scale, has yet to be applied to commercially sexually exploited youth. Using data from an ongoing study evaluating a program intended to meet the needs of commercially sexually exploited youth, ACE questions were extrapolated from the CANS-CSE. Findings indicated that 88% of youth experienced four or more ACEs, and nearly half the sample (54%) experienced seven or more ACEs. The relationship between ACE scores and the emotional/behavioral needs of commercially sexually exploited youth were also assessed.
