Nadine Burke Harris, M.D. “Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity”
Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is a pioneering physician who delivers targeted care to vulnerable children. Her groundbreaking research shows how childhood adversity such as abuse, neglect and even divorce can change our biological systems – from stress responses and growth rates to diabetes, heart disease and more – and that these changes can last a lifetime. Burke Harris will reveal not only how deeply our bodies can be imprinted, but also what we can do to break the cycle.
“[Burke Harris] delivers revelations about what is really going on – in our bodies, in our families, in our communities – as a result of childhood toxic stress, as well as targeted solutions for individual healing.” – Ashley Judd, actress and activist
