Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators, and communities who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.
Contrary to myth and taboo, child trauma is common. The Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study showed that 42% of middle class participants had two or more types of ACE childhood traumas, and 66% had at least one. The ACE questionnaire showed that 71% of inner city participants had four or more ACE traumas and 51% had six or more.
A child may not remember trauma, but the body remembers — all our lives. Childhood trauma produces in adults the top ten causes of death in the U.S. — including heart disease, lung disease, cancer, liver disease, and diabetes. Exposure to trauma affects children’s developing brains. It causes addictions like tobacco, alcohol, and drug abuse.
“We can heal this. We should be going after these solutions like a bear!” – Jack Shonkoff MD, Harvard
Experts and practitioners profiled in Resilience are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
