To me this video on adverse childhood experiences (#aces) by @PublicHealthW is problematic.
It implies that these exposures are deterministic at an individual level. They are not.
Associations are seen at the population level & are probabilistic. If you have experienced these exposures it does *not* mean that you will become depressed, end up in prison, or die prematurely.
