The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-term Effects of Childhood Adversity
By Nadine Burke Harris, MD
This book entirely changed how we think about trauma. It frames the impact of childhood adversity in terms of lifetime impact. Not only does childhood adversity have psychological implications, it also increases health outcomes in general including propensity for heart disease, obesity, and other inflammatory conditions.
Dr. Nadine Burke Harris's book is essential for understanding the long term effects of community trauma as well as individual trauma.
