Description

In this training, participants will understand how the environment impacts early brain architecture in young children and explore how protective factors can minimize risk. They will examine toxic stress and its impact upon development. Participants will engage in an experiential activity, “The Brain Architecture Game” which will give them a depth of understanding about these concepts. Participants will have the opportunity to apply concepts learned in the training to their own cases and develop strategies to assist client systems.
