EFFECTS OF STRESS IN EARLY LIFE


SUMMARY

Stress in early life thus has far-reaching effects on brain biochemistry and behavior, even into adult life. It should be assumed that internationally adopted children have experienced some degree of stress prior to placement with their adoptive families. Although a loving and supportive adoptive home may overcome some of the effects of stress in early life, some children may require specific treatment for prior stress. Vulnerable personality, genetic susceptibility, age at time of trauma, type and severity of trauma, and associated experiences all contribute to the outcome of children who have experienced stress in early life.
