Summary
"In Scared Sick, childhood expert and therapist Robin Karr-Morse and lawyer and strategist Meredith Wiley propose that chronic fear experienced in infancy and early childhood lies at the root of numerous diseases as well as emotional and behavioral pathologies in adults."--Jacket
Summary
Draws on findings in a range of scientific disciplines to demonstrate how chronic fear in early childhood can be linked to common adult health issues, sharing illuminating case studies to reveal how compromises to an overworked fight-or-flight system have the potential to trigger such disorders as obesity, depression, and addiction
