Healing the long term effects of childhood adversity
Nadine Burke Harris, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.A.P., discusses how childhood adversity impacts health over a lifetime in this Grand Rounds session.
She described her session: "There is hard science behind adversity and trauma that gives us new hope in breaking the cycle of childhood adversity and its physical manifestations that too often get handed down from generation to generation. And everyone should have access to this science and hope. I present this work for parents, grandparents, clinicians, educators and other caregivers who are trying to figure out the best ways to give children the best shot in this world despite the difficulties life throws their way. My hope is to inspire conversations—around dinner tables, in doctors’ offices, at PTA meetings, in courtrooms and at city councils. But my greatest hope is to inspire action—big and small."
