The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity

The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity

by Nadine Burke Harris 

Dr. Nadine Burke Harris was already known as a crusading physician delivering targeted care to vulnerable children. But it was Diego — a boy who had stopped growing after a sexual assault — who galvanized her journey to uncover the connections between toxic stress and lifelong illnesses.

The news of Burke Harris’s research is just how deeply our bodies can be imprinted by ACEs—adverse childhood experiences like abuse, neglect, parental addiction, mental illness, and divorce. Childhood adversity changes our biological systems, and lasts a lifetime.  For anyone who has faced a difficult childhood, or who cares about the millions of children who do, the scientific insight and innovative, acclaimed health interventions in The Deepest Well represent hope for preventing lifelong illness for those we love and for generations to come​.

One thought on “Book: “The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity””

  1. Dr. Burke Harris’s book is excellent. I read a pre journal entry on her work and then the book. Excellent for those who practice RHS and do Ontological counseling using Prosperos tools.
