Subject: Fwd: Question about the research re neurophysiological changes due

to stress



I should have said that I am familiar with Perry's and others' work.

I want to ask a few questions about this body of research.



Here is the question.



When researchers are discussing the effects of stress/trauma/domestic

violence on children and referring to physiological or

neurophysiological changes, what level of stress/trauma/domestic

violence are they referring to? I have never seen it quantified.



My impression is that to cause long term neurobiological or

neurophysiological changes in an individual it would have to be

repeated over an extended period of time (weeks? months?) if the

amount of stress (no medical evidence of physical harm) was a 3-4 on a

10 point scale in a 2 year old child. Anyone have any ideas?
