Kid Stuff:

Donna Jackson Nakazawa has published a book titled Childhood Disrupted. A summary of her ideas can be seen in the Psychology Today article. The basic premise is that Adverse Childhood Experiences, (ACE), can lead to later adverse health and psychological conditions. It’s been my experience that most people with substance abuse problems have had more than there share of ACEs. This is not mentioned in the article. I’ve always felt that therapy is useful in most any recovery program.
