We are all a product of our childhood environments. Dr. Nadine Burke Harris reveals how Adverse Childhood Experiences such as abuse, neglect and even divorce can have lasting effects on human health. Childhood adversity changes our biological systems—from stress responses and growth rates to diabetes, heart disease and more – and these changes can last a lifetime. Burke Harris reveals just how deeply our bodies can be imprinted for life by childhood adversity—and what we can do to break the cycle.

Nadine Burke Harris, M.D., is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures in association with CALM, KIDS Network, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, and the Resiliency Project. Part of the Thematic Learning Initiative: Creating a Meaningful Life.
