When we as children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, excessive stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering our body chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting our stress response to "high", which in turn can have a devastating impact on our mental and physical health.
Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Groundbreaking in its research and inspiring in its clarity, Childhood Disrupted explains how you can reset your biology - and help your loved ones find ways to heal.

some disturbing content, overall very imformative
I found some of the content in the stories highly disturbing but overall it has very good information. I loved that the book stresses that these challenges can be overcome and you can form new neural pathways in your brain. Discusses benefits of mindfulness, meditation and other non traditional therapies to assist in creating these new neural pathways . Pretty easy to listen to other than certain content in the stories, not too much brain biology that you need to be a doctor to understand but enough so you understand how the brain works and how past traumas affect you today. You really can't go wrong with this one.

Thorough Review of ACES Research & Stress Injury
An absolute must read for professionals or individuals who want a complete understanding of the latest data and insight into Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). Includes personal stories of people who have suffered from the health impacts of living with stress injuries. A final examination of healing solutions is gratefully appreciated.
