Health & Wellness
My research is focused on preventing or mitigating the devastating impact on children (and adults) of adverse childhood experiences, such as maltreatment, family dysfunction, and other childhood trauma. This includes evaluation of the physical and emotional impact of childhood adversity, screening to identify adverse experiences in clinical and community settings, and community awareness and trauma-informed training. Mys work aims to support the social-emotional growth of vulnerable children in their families, communities, and the health care system.
How I use the HeartMath System
I evaluate the use of HeartMath resilience coaching within high risk educational settings, with students and teachers.
