My Reading List: The Deepest Well
I’d like to share some recommended reading. Let’s start with The Deepest Well by Nadine Burke Harris. A moderately deep dive into the long term impacts of childhood toxic stress (or Adverse Childhood Experiences - ACEs). ACEs include 10 categories ranging from physical abuse to parental separation. About 60% of us have experienced at least one ACE, and 16% have 4 or more. The more ACEs, the more health issues down the road. Take the ACEs Quiz if you are interested. This is a public health issue worthy of conversation.
