Our longtime collaboration has allowed us to translate the science of stress into weaving threads of resilience with practical therapeutic tools and science-grounded techniques that can be done even outside of a therapist's office. At a time when we are acutely aware that anyone can experience trauma, it is especially exciting to have tools our children, families and medical teams can use to heal.1 November 2021
