In the seminal work "What Happened to You", luminaries Oprah Winfrey and acclaimed brain and trauma specialist Dr. Bruce Perry introduced a pioneering shift in perspective from "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?" Nevertheless, it's clear that similar events can elicit vastly different responses from different individuals. This eBook dives deeper, exploring the underpinnings of neuroscience to pose an even more fundamental question, "How did your brain interpret what happened to you?"

This eBook provides an in-depth exploration of the PACE model and its significant influence on human behavior. It delves into how social domains stimulate brain responses and guide our actions, emotions, and motivations. By unraveling the complex interplay of these elements within our social environment, the book equips readers with valuable insights to enhance interpersonal relationships, promote personal growth, and contribute to building stronger, more supportive communities. It serves as a comprehensive guide for anyone seeking to understand the intricacies of social experiences and human behavior.
