Early Adversity and the Neurobehavioral Development of Children, Part 2 - 2010
Adversity or disadvantage experienced early in children’s lives can lead to enduring social, emotional, and academic issues. The University of Oregon’s Dr. Phil Fisher examines how familial and social factors associated with adversity can shape brain development in a way that undermines children’s self-regulation and positive adjustment. Dr. Fisher will highlight promising programs that promote positive family and school contexts and prevent adverse outcomes for children.
