  • 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!

    SEMINAR TESTIMONIALS
  • 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!

    SEMINAR TESTIMONIALS
  • 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!
