Each of us takes the same journey from birth to consciousness—but none of us recalls it. Join renowned psychiatrist Bruce D. Perry, recipient of the 2014 Dolores Kohl Education Prize, for this discussion of early-childhood brain development and its long-term importance. This program is presented in partnership with the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation.
Dr. Bruce Perry, MD, PhD, child psychiatrist, is author of the extraordinary book, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist’s Notebook—What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing, has been instrumental in changing the way mental health practitioners understand and treat the most wounded and vulnerable children in our society. He’s founder and senior fellow at the Child Trauma Academy in Houston, TX, he’s a professor of medicine and international consultant on children’s mental health. He will be in Santa Fe in September, at an early childhood symposium at Santa Fe Community College.
