That which can be predicted can be prevented! When we are aware of the influence of adverse childhood experiences on brain development and functioning, we are more likely to interact in appropriate and helpful ways. We are then more likely to be able to help interrupt cycles of trauma and promote the health and success of individuals, organizations and communities.
