About This Event

Toxic stress responses begin to explain how significant adversity in childhood becomes biologically embedded and influences behavior, learning and health outcomes across the lifespan.

In this era of significant adversity (a global pandemic, racial tensions, economic disparities, political polarization), it is important to understand what the science of toxic stress does and does not say about the impact of all this adversity on children. More importantly, a new, strengths-based framework is needed to clarify how to build healthy, resilient children in the face of such adversity.
