Psychological Trauma and Chronic Illness: An Unexpected Relationship

Frederick S. Upton Education Center, St. Joseph, MI

For years we have treated the mind and body as separate systems; illness of the mind has been seen as apart from illness of the body. Recent research has shown that not only is the mind-body connection real, but that the root of many chronic physical illnesses can be traced to the past adversity and toxic stress. This lecture will explore this connection as well as some of the ways that we can begin to heal our community.
