- Bob Shebib – What specific neurological and biological changes occur for the client as a result of building a relationship with the therapist? Oxytocin? Dopamine? Reduction of stress hormones?
- Hillary – when someone experiences trauma in early development there is a “shift” in the nervous system. What does the shift look like in adulthood and is it changeable with secure attachment
- Richard Hill – Nov 2017 NPT – Prepared, Ready and Able: How we biologically prepare ourselves for future experience.

- Genome-wide Epigenetic Regulation by Early-Life Trauma https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4991944/ (Childhood adversity is associated with epigenetic alterations in the promoters of several genes in hippocampal neurons. – this study suggests that early-life adversity induces sustained modifications in DNA methylation across the genome that associate with alterations in transcriptional patterns that may be relevant to help understand suicide risk among individuals who were abused during childhood.)
