We’ve spent the past 7 years explaining the brain, and how trauma impacts it, in a very simple fashion because, well, most of us are parents, and caregivers, not medical experts. That’s precisely why we love the work that Jessica Sinarski is doing through BrainBrains and the books and resources she’s created. This interview was enlightening, refreshing, and thought-provoking!
