Episode 027 - Police Brutality and Racial Inequity from a Neurobiological Perspective with Dr. Bruce Perry
Dr. Bruce Perry is the senior fellow of the Child Trauma Academy. A major activity of the CTA is to translate emerging findings about the human brain and child development into practical implications for the ways we nurture, protect, enrich, educate and heal children. This model has been discussed as optimal for promoting social change in our current complex world. Solving problems which involve parenting, education, the law, child protection systems, mental health, law enforcement and a host of related systems across every professional discipline is challenging. In response to this challenge, Dr. Perry and his team have created a collaborative, interdisciplinary virtual Center of Excellence to address the needs of high needs, high risk children. Dr. Perry is a psychiatrist who holds an MD and PhD. His accomplishments are vast and numerous but to highlight some they include: best selling author the book The Boy Who Was Raised As a Dog, faculty member, research professor, Chief of Psychiatry at Texas Children’s Hospital, and Medical Director. He has attended or held positions at Baylor, University of Chicago Medicine, Northwestern, Amherst, Stanford and Yale. His 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 such as the Branch Davidian siege in Waco (1993), the Oklahoma City bombing (1995), the Columbine school shootings (1999), the September 11th terrorist attacks (2001), Hurricane Katrina (2005), and the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings (2012) and more. A word about what Dr. Perry's work has meant to my work... His clinical research over the years has been focused on integrating emerging principles of developmental neuroscience into clinical practice. This work has resulted in the Neurosequential Model©. This approach to clinical problem solving has been integrated into the programs at dozens of large public and non-profit organizations serving at-risk children and their families including where I started as a Clinical Director in 2003 using Dr. Perry’s work… Personal experiences at Littler Center, Namaqua Center, Mt. St Vincent Home for Children, and CereScan now CereHealth Today...I think Dr. Perry can help lead the way to how we reform law enforcement and help black, disadvantaged communities heal and create new systems of reality for their futures.
