Summary:
When Ghosts from the Nursery was published in 1997, it was lauded for providing scientific evidence that violence can originate in the womb and become entrenced in a child's brain by preschool. This revised edition continues to shift the conversation among parents and policy makers toward more preventative measures, incorporating significant advances in the field of neurobiological research over the past decade.
