Do You Know Your Rights if You Disagree?

Leveraging Advances in Science to Achieve Breakthrough Impacts at Scale for Young Children Facing Adversity (Thu. 21 Feb, 2019 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm)

Leveraging Advances in Science to Achieve Breakthrough Impacts at Scale for Young Children Facing Adversity

Jack P. Shonkoff, M.D., Director of the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, will address how new science is changing how we think about early childhood adversity and resilience – and how early experiences affect lifelong health and development. He will emphasize the need to address (and measure) individual differences in response to adversity and to intervention in very young children. He will also show how we can move beyond the current definition of “evidence-based” programs to answer a more precise set of questions that can better support breakthrough impacts at scale.
Explore this topic further at the 21st National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect, where the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard will introduce a tool to apply the science of childhood resilience to daily child welfare practice and policy decisions.
