For years, we have been studying the psychological changes that are the result of childhood trauma. Early childhood trauma involves the ripple effect of dysfunctional relationships and self-destructive behavior. And early negative experiences affect the development and structure of the brain.
Veronica Winters-Everly shouldn’t be alive today. Her own experience of being sexually abused, of losing her teenage daughter to suicide and her son to an opioid overdose has led her on a heroic journey of triumph over adversity in which breakthroughs in neuroscience reduced her trauma and restored her stress resiliency. Today, she is launching an initiative to produce a study of 100 women survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence who will participate in this neuro-technology driven program. This study is designed for publication, with oversight and results measured by PhD clinical research psychologists.
