The Society for Research in Child Development is offering a webinar we think sounds excellent.  The following is their information on this learning opportunity:

The Science of Childhood Trauma & Family Separation

Thursday, June 28th 3-4pm (EST)

As the U.S. federal government begins the process of reuniting children separated from their families at the U.S./Mexico border, experts will explore the research evidence on how such separation experiences impact children’s well-being. Developmental scientists will shed light on what the research indicates for ongoing child well-being post-reunification. Topics will include issues such as:

  • How the experiences of border detainees might compare to other cases of child separation such as when parents are incarcerated or deployed for military service,
  • How child trauma affects brain development, and
  • How the age of the child impacts the effects of these separation experiences.

WHO: Panelists include:

  • Cynthia García Coll, Ph.D., Associate Director of Institutional Center of Scientific Research, Albizu University, Editor, Child Development
  • Gabriela Livas Stein, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
  • Nim Tottenham, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Columbia University
  • Moderator: To be announced
