The inspiration behind Mine’s latest book is her passionate belief that neuroscience should be embedded in all child care qualifications and Early Years curricula. Just as lecturers and practitioners alike, draw on child development theorists to understand behaviour, neuroscience is giving us powerful insights to the brain and the direct, long-term impact that all experiences, especially care-giving, exert on the brain’s architecture and consequent behaviour. Professionals working with and on behalf of children, can no longer afford to ignore the evidence and instead, need to use this to inform their practice.

A FABULOUS addition to my bookshelf. Thanks for writing this book Mine. I’ve recommended it to all my students (who are scrambling to buy a copy). A long overdue look at childhood from an evidence-based neuroscience perspective, no pseudoscience, no hype, AND an enjoyable read. You’re my new hero!

  • Working at Body & Soul, a childhood adversity charity, we see many people who have experienced significant trauma in their early lives. Mine’s research is crucial for understanding the effects of trauma and toxic stress on the brain, and sharing what can be done to transform these effects so that children and adults alike can thrive regardless of their past experiences. Great talk Mine!

  • Inspirational talk and excellent research from Mine. Mine was an excellent, clear speaker, she spoke with very little crutch words which made her a great talker and clear to understand throughout the talk. I learnt tremendous amounts of information and I will become a much better person from this talk. I have a lot of respect for you. There should be more people like you. You are my new role model!
