Dr. Bruce Perry, continued from previous page

Dr. Perry has been an active teacher, clinician and researcher in children's mental health and neurosciences holding a variety of academic positions. Dr. Perry has conducted both basic neuroscience and clinicalresearch. His neuroscience research has examined the effects of prenatal drug exposure on brain neurophysiology of traumatic life events and basic mechanisms related to the development of  neurotransmitter receptors in the brain. His clinical research and practice has focused on high-risk children. This work has examined the cognitive, behavioral, emotional, social, and physiological effects of neglect and trauma in children, adolescents and adults. This work has been instrumental in describing how childhood experiences, including neglect and traumatic stress, change the biology of the brain - and, thereby, the health of the child. 

Dr. Perry has presented about child maltreatment, children's mental health, neurodevelopment and youth violence in a variety of venues including policy-making bodies such as the White House Summit on Violence, the California Assembly and U.S. House Committee on Education and Dr. Perry’s experience as a clinician and a researcher with traumatized children has led many community and governmental agencies to consult Dr. Perry following high-profile incidents involving traumatized children.

Dr. Perry is the author of over 500 journal articles, book chapters and scientific proceedings and is the recipient of numerous professional awards and honors, including the T. Berry Brazelton Infant Mental Health Advocacy Award, the Award for Leadership in Public Child Welfare, the Alberta Centennial Medal and the 2014 Kohl Education Prize.
