What Happens in Childhood Does Not Stay in Childhood: What is True and What We Must Do!

Jun 28, 2019
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Recent advances in the basic sciences of development are potentially transformational. Fields like epigenetics, developmental neuroscience, and life-course studies are allowing us to peer into the proverbial black box that links experiences in childhood with outcomes in health, education, parenting and economic productivity decades later. By understanding how both adverse and affiliative experiences in childhood are biologically embedded, we are well positioned to not only treat the consequences of “toxic stress responses” but to proactively build the safe, stable and nurturing relationships that buffer adversity and build resilience. Although this emphasis on relational health is almost counter-cultural, a public health approach to building safe, stable and nurturing relationships is a science-informed approach to address many of our society’s most intractable problems, including disparities in health, educational achievement, and economic productivity.

The appropriate audience includes anyone working to build resilience within our community.
