Signature Forums Speaker Series: Fight. Flight. Freeze.


Toxic psychological stress—violence, poverty, neglect, abuse—has negative effects on a child’s brain. How does this trauma alter a child’s brain? What are the effects on behavioral, social, and emotional functioning? How does this affect society?

Dr. Bethany Brand, one of the world’s foremost authorities in psychological trauma, will provide important insight into brain function changes in adults due to childhood trauma and the repercussions for our society.
