Annie Brook: Birth’s Hidden Legacy

Posted: December 3, 2014 at 8:00 am by , in Featured, Morning Magazine

How does birth influence personality and shape behavior? In her new book: Birth’s Hidden Legacy, Volumes I and II, Annie Brook, PhD explores prenatal and birth origins of behavior, identity and personality.

Brook integrates prenatal and perinatal psychology, infant mental health, child development, and somatic psychotherapy in an exploration of how our experience in utero and in birth can shape us as adults. Brook says that “early experience and hurt lodged in the primitive brain produce out-dated response habits in adults and children when under stress.”

Annie Brook will speak about her book at the Boulder Bookstore on Wednesday December 3rd at 7.30 p.m.
