Description

This study examines the correlation between early childhood and adulthood traumatic experiences and resilience. Early childhood experiences account for many aspects of our personality as we grow and mature. Using this notion, studying and testing this subject can give us a better perspective of how we can deal with stressful experiences within our adulthood, but first we must look to the past. Previous literature suggests that childhood trauma has something to do with mental as well as physical health later in life. The purpose of this study is to measure resilience and stress in relation to both time periods, early childhood and adulthood, within the subjects and compare the two.
