EFFECTS OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT ON THE BRAIN
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO TFN
By adulthood a person’s thinking brain and their emotional brain should work well in tandem. So when a person experiences stress or distress the brain is able to cope and get us back to a steady state. This is the foundation of development and is profoundly affected by childhood trauma.
Doing what we can to help heal childhood trauma is incredibly important. We have short amount of time to get it right or to get it wrong. Childhood and adolescence is brief. And that impact of this time is going to be there for the rest of their lives.
