In my talk, based on attachment research, I will show how trauma or toxic stress in childhood, is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on the mind, brain and body which affects not only how we feel but also how we perceive the world and how we think. In so doing she will cover the subject of Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma Informed Care which offer us a new public health approach in relation to physical and mental health including current worrying levels of violence.
