New eBook On Childhood Trauma And The Brain. 1

Book Description :

Sadly, severe childhood trauma can actually physically affect brain development which can adversely affect how we feel and behave for years, or decades afterwards. Fortunately, however, due to the brain’s ability to continue to physically alter itself during our adult lives (due to a phenomenon known as ‘neuroplasticity’) it is possible for the brain to recover.
This book (2nd Edition, Revised and Expanded 2019) examines how childhood trauma can harm our brain, together with how this harm can be undone.
