Grounding Trauma: 2017 “THRIVE,“ CAST Canada

Ottawa, Ontario
July 6, 2017

Speaker: Dr. Adele Diamond, Canada Research Chair Tier 1, Professor of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

"...a markedly different perspective from ​mainstream"

Adele will speak on:

  • The role of early adverse experiences (including childhood trauma) and unresolved grief in a host of health problems (mental as well as physical) and social problems including depression, anxiety, suicide, heart disease, immune disorders, lung disease, obesity, addictions, homelessness, chronic unemployment, and more.
  • The childhood origins of adult disease and how stress a parent experiences early in his or her life can negatively affect that person’s children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
  • What can be done to head off children experiencing adverse events, to mitigate the effects of stressors in children’s lives and in their parents’ lives, and to help people thrive despite having experienced trauma earlier in life.
  • AND, critically, how prefrontal cortex and executive functions are especially negatively impacted by trauma and early adverse experiences,
  • AND how executive functions can be of such great help in recovering from stressful and traumatic experiences.
