INTERNATIONAL WEBINAR SERIES

Neurobiology of Stress and Trauma in Children and Adolescents

January 30, 10:00 a.m. MST / 12:00 p.m. EST

Please join us for this FREE webinar with Darcey Merritt, PhD, of the NYU Silver School of Social Work, and Jessica Black, PhD, of the Boston College School of Social Work, who will present an approach to addressing child maltreatment that focuses on the impact of abuse and neglect on the brain development of children and adolescents.

Children involved in the child welfare system have all experienced trauma and are extremely susceptible to stress. The timing and duration of this stress influences behavioral outcomes, particularly during the developmental stage of adolescence when the brain is most sensitive to stress. It is critical for practitioners and researchers to understand the neuroscientific mechanisms inherent in the functioning of our most vulnerable child population.
