Toxic Stress on Children

One of our good friends Deborah McNeils is speaking at and event coming us here in Milwaukee called "Toxic Stress in Childhood: The impact on brain development in young children.  Deborah has spoken at several of our educational events over the years and will be a presenter at the INA Conference May 3-6th  in Las Vegas.

Early childhood adversity and toxic stress can have long lasting effects, even disrupting the architecture of the brain, according to recent research. What are the emotional, behavioral and physical effects of profound, consistent stress in early childhood? What types of intervention strategies are effective in addressing toxic stress? Join us for a compelling discussion of this issue affecting thousands of children in our society.
