'Dr Nadine Burke Harris reveals the science behind Adverse Childhood Experience and the tangible effects of abuse, neglect and stress on the development of the brain and long term health

A pioneering physician reveals how childhood stress leads to lifelong health problems and what we can do to break the cycle.
A pioneer in the field of medicine, TED-Talk speaker and subject of a New Yorker profile, Dr Nadine Burke Harris is leading a movement to transform the way we respond to the public health crisis of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress that dramatically impacts our health and longevity. By revealing the science behind childhood adversity, this book offers a new way of understanding the adverse events that affect us throughout our lifetime. Based on her own groundbreaking clinical work and public leadership, Burke Harris shows us how we can disrupt this cycle through interventions that help retrain the brain and body, foster resilience, and help children, families, and adults live healthier, happier lives.
Like the classic Silent Spring, this book helps readers see a problem hiding in plain sight that impacts us all. By looking at the widespread crisis of childhood adversity through the objective lens of science and medicine, this book provides a roadmap for deeper understanding and change.
