"An extraordinary, eye-opening book."—People 2018 National Health Information Awards, Silver Award "A rousing wake-up call . . . this highly engaging, provocative book prove[s] beyond a reasonable doubt that millions of lives depend on us finally coming to terms with the long-term consequences of childhood adversity and toxic stress."—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow 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 stunning 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 fascinating scientific insight and innovative, acclaimed health interventions in The Deepest Well represent vitally important hope for preventing lifelong illness for those we love and for generations to come​. "Nadine Burke Harris . . . offers a new set of tools, based in science, that can help each of us heal ourselves, our children, and our world."—Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed "A powerful—even indispensable—frame to both understand and respond more effectively to our most serious social ills."—New York Times

        Founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness in San Francisco and a TED talker whose "I Was Thinking Too Small" has been viewed 2.5 million times, Burke Harris was inspired by a young male patient who stopped growing after sexual trauma to investigate the long-term impact of childhood adversity. A survey of 17,000 adult patients found that the higher the incidence of experiences such as divorce and parental substance abuse, the worse the adult's health. With a 75,000-copy first printing.

        A pediatrician's battle against the toxic effects of childhood adversity.In 2007, after opening a community clinic in a low-income neighborhood of San Francisco, Harris soon suspected that an underlying medical issue must be at work in the lives of many of her patients, who often experienced both poor health outcomes (asthma, slow growth, etc.) and the overwhelming adversity of trauma (parental incarcerations, abuse, foster-care placements, etc.) What was the connection? She found her answer several years later in a medical article that changed her medical practice, "The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study," in which scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Kaiser Permanente described the strong relationship between childhood trauma and many leading causes of death in adults. In this powerful debut, the author describes the medical research and recalls her own frontline experiences as a pioneer in the treatment of toxic stress as CEO of San Francisco's Center for Youth Wellness, which offers multidisciplinary care for children suffering from trauma. "The body remembers," she writes. "Twenty years of medical research has shown that childhood adversity literally gets under our skin, changing people in ways that can endure in their bodies for decades." Indeed, adversity "can dramatically increase the risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes--even Alzheimer's." In a winning conversational style, Harris explains how adversity "harms development and regulation of the immune system throughout someone's life" and the ways in which doctors now screen for and treat childhood trauma--sleep, mental health, healthy relationships, exercise, nutrition, and meditation. She notes that adverse childhood experiences affect people of all socio-economic levels (they are often disguised out of secrecy and shame), and their harmful effects can be passed on from one generation to another.The author's work has won wide attention through a New Yorker article and a TED talk. This important and compassionate book further sounds the alarm over childhood trauma--and what can be done to remedy its effects.
