I felt honored to meet her. And she signed my dissertation: How Duration of Relationship With a Care Provider and Creating Connected Care With Parents Impacts Resilience in Infants and Toddlers.
Not only is she a medical doctor but also a pediatrician who builds bridges between social, emotional, and physical health. Finally, people are ready to start looking at the impact emotional and social experiences have on physical health.
Additionally, she brought 90 million dollars to California to fund the ACEs Aware Initiative. And there’s more funding on the way!
Dr. Burke Harris has made a career out of bringing awareness to childhood trauma. And she continually aims to help others understand the importance of healing from adverse childhood experiences.
She employs education, screening, early detection, and early intervention. Additionally, Dr. Burke Harris understands the stress and biochemical changes in the body. That is, the factors leading to mental illness and other health issues later in life.
Not only does she understand but also Dr. Burke Harris does something about it. She takes children off of medications that don’t help, then teaches them stress-reducing techniques that pay off in the long run.
She addresses the root cause.
That’s another reason I admire her so much.
Dr. Burke Harris utilizes the best in sleep, exercise, nutrition, mindfulness, and supportive environments to help reduce stress hormones, thus, leading to true healing.
