Présentation de l'éditeur

This new, revised edition incorporates significant advances in neurobiological research over the past decade, and includes a new introduction by Dr. Vincent J. Felitti, a leading researcher in the field. When Ghosts from the Nursery: Tracing the Roots of Violence was published in 1997, it was lauded for providing scientific evidence that violence can originate in the womb and become entrenched in a child’s brain by preschool. The authors’ groundbreaking conclusions became even more relevant following the wave of school shootings across the nation including the tragedy at Columbine High School and the shocking subsequent shootings culminating most recently in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Following each of these media coverage and public debate turned yet again to the usual suspects concerning the causes of violence: widespread availability of guns and lack of mental health services for late-stage treatment. Discussion of the impact of trauma on human life—especially early in life during chemical and structural formation of the brain—is missing from the equation. Karr-Morse and Wiley continue to shift the conversation among parents and policy makers toward more fundamental preventative measures against violence.

Excellent ! I was extremely shocked by direct consequences of our own behavior as parents on our children. Very instructive. Bravo !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book for anyone interested in children. 4 janvier 1998
Par ROARKB@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book has gotten excellent and well-deserved advance praise from a variety of sources. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in children, children's issues, social policy, or even just looking for some fascinating information on the development of the human brain (and all that that implies). It is clear, just from news accounts, that younger and younger children are committing crimes that are more and more violent. This book is an explanation for this rising tide of violence by youth using the latest early brain development research, case studies, etc. This book asks us to look at the (largely ignored in practice and policy) 0-3 age group as a source of changing this tide of violence. Abuse, neglect, head injury, chemicals, etc. all have lasting effects on the developing child & child's brain. "Ghosts From The Nursery" shows us that we really need look not much further than early childhood to explain and alter this expanding youth violence, anger and crime. There are chapters on brain development and substances that are well-written and easy for the layman to understand. There is an excellent chapter on the important role that fathers play in their children's development, and there are some excellent resources. With all of the discussion of the importance of the 0-3 age group that is currently cropping up, this is the best and most comprehensive book for the exact importance of that age group.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating book, with well-researched hypothesis 17 janvier 2005
Par KristiMetz - Publié sur Amazon.com
The author's general hypothesis for this book is the importance of the first two years of life (including in utero) to child development, and how when a combination of factors are combined, it is easy to predict that a child will turn to violence.

A fascinating book that is well-researched. I was able to understand the importance that the first two years of life have for a child, and how a baby deprived of love and the essentials for emotional and physical growth can be affected for the rest of their life by this time.

If you're a parent and you're interested by this book, also check out "Our Babies, Ourselves".

If you're looking for a book on how your child, raised in a happy and functional home, can avoid violence, this is probably not it. But if you read in the papers about children who carry guns to school and wonder why it happens, you're barking up the right alley. :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the parent and for the professional . . . 16 avril 2001
Par Holly Martinac - Publié sur Amazon.com
Violence committed by children is in the news on an almost weekly basis. With each incident that occurs, the children seem to be younger and younger, the latest being a six-year-old shooting to death another six-year-old classmate. When the general public is supplied with media reports which fail to look at the real roots of these violent behaviors, our desire for the quick and simple explanations often leads us to scapegoat poverty or race as a means to excuse these heinous crimes.
The authors of Ghosts from the Nursery provide compelling evidence that violent behavior is learned in not only the first two years of life, but is derived from abusive and neglectful environments the first few months of early development. In fact, the authors share significant evidence revealing a predisposition to violent behavior that can be a direct result to exposure of toxins such as drugs and alcohol, combined with a mother's stress hormones generated from rage or fear, can directly affect brain development of the fetus. What makes this important? The core of an individuals ability to think, feel and relate to others is formed during the first years of life. Exposure to an environment overwhelmed with extreme abuse and neglect can seriously hamper this important development.
I feel the following passage from this book provides a profound affirmation which requires us not only to look at societal implications of violence in the family, but how it reaches families across cultural and classical boundaries:
"Impoverishment in the families producing violent children often exists at a deeper than material level. When looking closely at the families of violent children across classes and racial differences, we find an impoverishment of human connectedness, trust, support and emotional nurturing. People feel angry and alienated - often for several generations. There is a sense of separateness; a chronic irritability; an absence of optimism, joy, and knowing how to laugh; and a need to numb against hopelessness. When children are born into such settings, child abuse and neglect are palpable potentials. . . . The problem isn't so much that we can't see these children coming as that we aren't sure what to do or how much to get involved." (page 271)
I would have to agree with the authors, that in order for the scientific research and multitude of existing and growing programs that support parents and children, to be effective in the battle against violence, we must radically change our views of babies. Babyhood is the formative years when our most complex and fundamental development in learning how we interact with others begins.
This book is well written and easy to follow. It clearly explains research and facts supporting what may be considered controversial theories tracing the roots of violence. It is a must read for anyone and everyone. Especially the politicians, judges, attorneys and those with a hand in determining the fate of children and their families.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Monumental Book 14 septembre 2001
Par LEON L CZIKOWSKY - Publié sur Amazon.com
If there is one book that could potentially change the direction of public policy regarding children's issues, this could be it. The authors delve into recent research into brain development. They presents their findings in a clear, understandable form. This research is then associated with what this means to our society. A case study, regarding a 16 year old boy who murdered an 84 year old man, weaves its way through the book so readers can relate the data to a real person.
This book examines how recent studies using PET and MRI scans and other methods allow us to better understand the human brain. Most of the crucial brain development occurs before a child reaches three years old. During those years, the human brain is programmed to adapt to its environment. Frontal lobe activity can be stimulated by parental involvement. A lack of this activity can lead to lifelong depressed behavior. What a baby is exposed to, or not exposed to, determines how the brain forms and how the brain is apt to operate for the rest of life.
A child who does not find empathy by the age of three is likely to have difficulty showing empathy towards others. A person without consideration for others has a much greater tendency to drift towards anti-social behavior such as violent crime. A baby growing up in a withdrawn or hostile environment may begin life at a signficant disadvantage.
The policy debate this creates is enormous. "Liberals" may call for taking steps to see that babies' brains are properly stimulated during the critical formulative years. Outreach programs to pregnant women and families with babies should provide information on good parenting techniques. There should be high quality child care with programs that stimulate babies' brain developments. Early education opportunities should reach the pre-school age. "Conservatives" may call for getting families to focus more of their energies on their children.
This is a fascinating book. Anyone interested in children should learn much from this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant 16 avril 2002
Par "vegafallingstar" - Publié sur Amazon.com
This was a truly amazing exploration of how children are affected from birth and beyond. Completely refuting the debate over nature vs. nurture, this book brilliantly examines how both inner and outer environments combine to determine the fate of children. Using the story of teenage killer "Jeffrey," each chapter of the book outlines how each stage of pre- and post-natal development determine if children will be destined for violence from the very beginning. This is an essential book for any person interested in redefining the cycle of violence. The ammunition that "Ghosts from the Nursery" provides through direct examples, research findings, and supported theories is invaluable for parents, social workers, psychology majors, and people in general who want to do more than put a band-aid on the epidemic of violence.
