Module Overview

Helping to Reduce the Effects of Poverty on Families, Children, and the Developing Brain

Length: 2 1/2-3 hours
ETO: Child Development

A growing body of research shows that the growing up in poverty can have long-term effects on children's brains and overall development. What happens in early childhood impacts children for a lifetime and the younger the child in poverty, the greater risk of poor outcomes. How can you help families reduce the effects of poverty on their children? The brain can adapt and change when provided with the right kinds of experiences. In this training, we will target five protective factors to increase positive resilience over negative vulnerability and gain a better understanding of how to support families living in poverty.
