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 audiobook 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 audiobook helps listeners 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 road map for deeper understanding and change.

Amazing is not enough
Loved this book, the very essence of the Resilience film made with Sundance. A worthy listen for everyone interacting with children and young people either as a parent, relative, teacher, youth worker, social worker, children's panel member, residential managers, police officers, doctors, nurses, paramedics. If you cross paths with children and young people this book is an absolute must, gaining an understanding of the full picture of adversity. I hope to hear much more from this author, researcher, doctor and visionary... its the tip of an enormous iceberg!
