My Personal Hero: Bruce McEwen

Dr. McEwen is a researcher at Rockefeller University who has researched and written extensively about the impact of stress and trauma on the brain. Of special interest to me is his explanation of what happens to the developing brain when subjected to repeated neglect and abuse. He gets it....and he's trying to educate others. Bless you, Dr. McEwen.

Brain researchers have gained substantial ground in this area, but clinicians, sadly, are still very much in the dark. That needs to change.
