Webinar: Better Brain for Baby-Stress and Trauma

Monday, August 24, 2020
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: Online Webinar

Supporting the healthy development of the young child’s brain is both a tremendous opportunity and an awesome responsibility.  While brain development begins prenatally, the brain is not fully developed at birth and the environment in which the young child grows up strongly influences the way the brain is wired. Chronic, long-term stress and trauma can damage the developing brain. Children with no predictability or consistency will be in a constant state of heightened stress.  The same is true for when children without secure attachments, or children who live in an unsafe physical environment.  This module focuses on the negative effects of stress and trauma on the developing brain and provides strategies for protecting or buffering children from toxic stress.
