Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope:
Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future lifelong health and opportunity. As such, early experiences are an important public health issue and a cross-government issue. Much of the foundational research in this area has been referred to as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). ACEs can be prevented and resilience can be learnt.
