How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Nadine Burke Harris





Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

    I'm now 59.
    I had childhood going on to adulthood trauma.
    I suffered from sexual, physical and emotional abuse.
    My life has been hell.
    I'm it still effects me.
    But nobody cares in the UK. Unlike Americans.
    Living with mental health problems you live in Bedlam every single day.

  4. I need help 31 my body is shutting down and everyday it becomes harder to do anything . Just as she is telling us how doctors won’t tell you I’ve found out alone as the stress buildup in this past 7 yrs . I and I still don’t have any type of treatment or help!

  5. She couldn't not have been more incisive, nor more timely. Talk about urgent….this is, indeed, a high morbidity issue! Her passion, for this pathology, is palpable!

  6. Joyel Lee says:

    I completely needed to hear that!!!♥️♥️♥️

  7. Mrs 504 says:

    She is brilliant. Thank you. Does she have a book?

  8. it would actually be simple. you just need to do some medical tests on the children or even take a look at their brain, and you could see if the child is mistreated or not.

  9. Great speech. This is not marginalized only because we don't want to face it. Big pharma does not want us to be aware of this. They prefer doctors prescribing medication rather than preventing or looking at the psychological cause of symptoms. Let's say you struggle with depression. Your doctors will prescribe antidepressants. The cause that might be an abuse in childhood will not be treated through medication. It'll be numb but not eradicate. Only through effective therapy like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and other therapies, the trauma can be healed. I am not againt medication but I am against the abuse use of it.

  10. TODAY IS THE BEST MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE, HERE THE BEST PLACE. PROBLEMS? DO WE ALL HAVE THE DIFFERENCE STARTER IN THE ATTITUDE THAT YOU TAKE BEFORE THEM?

    WHAT IS THE MIND? THE MOST WONDERFUL TOOL OF THE HUMAN BEING, IF YOU USE IT CONSTRUCTIVELY YOU CAN ACHIEVE EVERYTHING YOU PROPOSE.
    YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY? FREE OF ALL ATTACHMENT AND DEPENDENCE?
    WHAT IS HARD? BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE, AS WELL AS TRAINING THE PHYSICAL BODY THE MIND AND THE SOUL CAN ALSO BE TRAINED AND ACQUIRE A CONDITION OF STABILITY, PEACE AND EQUILIBRIUM!

    Word. If that ain't the truth then I don't know what is.

  12. I try to feel for people who are victims of trauma. It is no joke what a parent is capable of. Took up smoking at age 18 because of old wounds, did drugs here and there, did eventually find some loving people, but there are things you can make it through that really test how successful or how much of a failure you'll be. The people that can overcome individual failures come out stronger than they came in, that's the truth. I'm thankful everyday that I don't have people in my life who would want to do psychological, emotional, or physical harm to me like my adoptive parents.

  13. I was severely traumatized as a child, now I'm 39 years old… I've never been in a romantic relationship, I have no friends, and I've not even got the slightest clue on how to heal (or outrun) my past… Please, please, dear brothers and sisters, join me in prayer. Please pray: that I may find true (healthy) love, that I may make some real (intimate) friendships, and that I may (totally) finally, heal from a past that's been keeping me shackled.

  14. Skylover says:

    I fell asleep listening to her, she's so slow.

  15. Unbelievable! Thank you for this eye-opening video! Shared to Facebook.

  16. I can see her passion in her eyes and hear it in her voice … very influential

  17. I admire this woman's desire to practice real medicine. It starts in the heart as well as in the brain or else it is sidelined. Bravo!

  18. I want a doctor like her. I want HER to be my doctor. She is SO good and SOOOOO learned.

  19. I know all the physical & mental pain, rheumatic fever, learning and anger problems came because of how I was abused mentally and physically by my mother, father and 3 older brothers because I was a girl. If I had the choice I wish I would've never been born than to be born into a family like mine. The chronic pain never ended in childhood it followed me to this day. But now I also have the chronic fatigue And later I married a man who treated me like that and he let his family do the same because he wanted me to be treated that way. My next life has to be better than this.

  20. Lara Parks says:

    Entire families need psychiatric treatment the moment 1member walks in a psychiatrist door

  21. Lola Ma says:

    President Nadine Burke Harris is starting to sound p good

  22. I appreciate your earnest desire to improve people's lives. I like your delivery as well. In the ACES categories I don't remember you mentioning death of a parent in childhood. Where does this fall? Thanks

  23. yes panic attacks@ 57!! trama

  24. This talk makes all the sense in the world. They should have screening in schools before substantial trauma induced behavior becomes a set pattern. Why is it that we insist on stitching up a wound over & over instead of putting preventative measures in place to avoid getting the wound in the first place?

  25. I'm going to show this to my GP. I know that childhood adversity has caused me to now have a diagnosis of BPD but also im always physically ill. Currently i have cold and my immune system is messed up. Ive recently been screened for cancer after raised white cell counts. I am now realising that early stress has not only affected me mentally but physically too. I love your research please give it more fundung.

  26. I am bipolar since 1986. I have childhood trauma. My parents divorced when I was 8 years of age. My mom lived with another man who was a violent alcoholic and beat my mom. He abused me sexually. I was bullied in school. I also went to a legalistic church that scared me when my parents were married. It’s no wonder why am bipolar due to my childhood experiences.

  27. The children was between the ages of 2,4,5,8

  28. Could the death of a child's mother cause, histrionic conditions, or Narsisistic conditions.?

  29. Also, a HUGE help is sitting in front of the Blessed Sacrament. The Divine Physician heals!

  30. Tim Detmers says:

    Really great presentation! Thanks.

  31. Trennah S says:

    Finally!!! Someone that doesn’t wanna shove a pill down your throat to keep getting money!!!!!

  32. Luna Sea says:

    I'm 52. I suffered physical, mental and sexual abuse. I have severe bi polar disorder. I think it's too late for me.

  33. My psychiatrist recommended a novel for me to read called The Escape Diary. It entails childhood trauma on a young girl like me.

  34. ZiggyLu 2022 says:

    This is true, when I saw my blood on a screen which the blood should have been round and strong, but mine was half round and it look like they had bite marks out of them. I was shocked though when the practitioner said to me, “I see you family has been taking chunks out of you”. How did he know? So true. I was exhausted from their narcissistic abuse. He knew because he was aware of the incredible health impact on my body from what I had endured. It was time to set some serious boundaries

  35. Erika Meh says:

    This woman is amazing. To put it simply.

  36. DR. BURKE, THANK YOU! Thank you for your motivating insight, wisdom, and devotion!!!!! I've been inspired by a supreme Goddess! OMG!!!!!

  37. CritterFarm says:

    "But that's a problem.. when the bear comes home every night."
    That line really got to me; that's exactly how it felt.

  38. I've always enjoyed your work. Please view and share this piece on Suicide prevention

  39. Sal D'Souza says:

    What an excellent talk! But I'd be interested in data or studies that look at adults who had these adverse events happen to them and how to deal with it once they reach adulthood (before and/or after the health effects appear)

  40. Abby C says:

    This is totally true in my own life! Thank goodness I finally understand a bit what the heck is happening inside me!

  41. donsey100 says:

    This is called EPIGENETICS. Very important to know. How your environment can change your genetics. Very good video

  42. Wow I really needed to hear this

  43. Satu Johanna says:

    Can I but a billion likes to this??!!! This is the best thing I have ever heard, a doctor who wants to prevent deceases and understands that kids and adults need mental support!!
