Empowering the General Public to Learn About BAAM

“The extremely harmful nature of Adverse Childhood Experiences are often more long-lasting than people realize, & can still impact sufferers throughout their adulthood”

Mike Fisher, Anger & Stress Management Coach & Author

BAAM wants to lift the lid on the detrimental effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences, (ACEs), prior to age 18 – events which make the child more inclined to suffer from serious mental and physical issues later in life. The latter include: anger management problems, heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity, autoimmune disease, COPD, kidney disease, asthma, and diabetes, toxic stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, smoking, alcoholism, substance abuse, risky sexual behaviour, physical inactivity, isolation, unemployment, poor academic achievement, and substance abuse. Moreover, ACEs have a sizeable impact on future violence victimisation and perpetration.

Physical and emotional neglect and abuse; sexual abuse, and being subjected to household dysfunction, can all contribute to the negative web created by ACEs. In some cases, these events can be a result of: incarceration in the home, domestic violence, a separation/divorce, mental illness, or substance abuse (illicit drugs, overused prescription medication, and/or alcohol).

Furthermore, ACEs can also be brought about by other adverse aspects. These comprise: community violence, bullying, wartime or refugee experiences; witnessing, or being subject to acts of terrorism; and living through a natural disaster (such as extreme flooding of a neighbourhood that caused fatalities, and the loss of homes).

Everyone is invited to take the free quiz, which involves 10 simple Yes/No questions, that will culminate in a score. – If the score is high, it will serve as an indicator that the participant’s ACEs could be the cause of specific challenges that they are now facing in their adult life. These include: social and emotional difficulties, relationship issues, and a higher risk of specific health problems. So just sparing 5 minutes to do the free quiz is essential for anyone who ever feels anger bubbling up inside them.

The recently released BAAM ACEs quiz/test has already been done by in excess of 2,000 people. The average score thus far, is approximately 5 out of 10. Of note, two of the questions attracted particularly high scores:

  • Question Number 4: Did you frequently or fairly often, feel that no one in your family loved you, or thought you were important or special? Or your family didn’t look out for each other, feel close to each other, or support each other?
  • Question Number 5: Did you frequently or fairly often, feel that you didn’t have enough to eat, had to wear dirty clothes, and had no one to protect you? Or your parents were too drunk or high to take care of you or take you to the doctor if you needed it?

Furthermore, the Compassionate Prison Project – Honor Yard YouTube video, suggests that when a participant’s ACEs quiz score is as high as 7, 8, 9 or 10, then they are likely to end up with serious mental health issues, as well as in prison. To that end, after attaining such a score, further evaluations and remedial action should be a must.

BAAM’s tried and tested anger management methods and tools, include online or in-person group or personal training; and community encouragement and support. Both of these elements are designed to put the participant at ease, and show them that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that positive change is readily achievable. Moreover, participants are not only taught emotional intelligence and communication skills; BAAM’s results-based coaching empowers them to set clear goals, skills and strategies, to drive rapid meaningful change.


BAAM (the British Association of Anger Management), has been running for in excess of 26 years. Over this quarter of a century, it has fought a tidal wave of stigma around anger issues –  in that angry people are just as ‘normal’ as everyone else. To that end, they are proud to have played a role in bringing the anger issue to the fore, thereby helping countless people in the UK, the US, and other parts of the world, reclaim their dormant inner calm.
