Interventions to Promote Positive Outcomes Following Adverse Childhood Experiences

"Interventions to Promote Positive Outcomes Following Adverse Childhood Experiences"

Abstract: This presentation will focus on two parallel and interrelated domains of research: Investigations that characterize specific dimensions of early adversity (e.g., neglect, prenatal substance exposure) as they impact children’s psychological and neurobiological development; and prevention science studies that comprise theory driven experiments to evaluate intervention programs for infants and young children. We will describe how research in each area can reciprocally impact work in the other area, and how the confluence of this activity may be employed to impact social policy towards vulnerable children and families. Examples will be drawn from the presenter’s own prior and current research.
