The Boone County Children’s Services Board is hosting two events featuring Dr. Ross Thompson, Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California – Davis. Both events are free and provide information related to child development.
“Coping with Early Adversity” – Wednesday, September 13, 2017 (8:30 am – 11:30 am)
The goal is to survey recent research on the effects of stress on the developing brain and behavior and its implications for those who work with young children in early care and education settings, health care, family practice, and other contexts. Current understanding of how to address the challenges of young children who have experienced stress, adversity, and trauma are discussed, along with avenues of prevention, within the context of the growing field of infant/early childhood mental health. Continuing education credits and clock hours are pending approval for social workers, counselors, and child care professionals. The presentation will be held at Peachtree Catering & Banquet Center from 8:30 am – 11:30 am. Please, share with professionals that could benefit from this presentation.
