title Violence Against Children: Going from Neuroscience to Social Practice
description Researchers in neuroscience, psychiatry, pediatrics and social work join in a unique multidisciplinary collaboration to look at the impacts of violence against children. Topics include neurodevelopment, neuroplasticity, mental health and social consequences of abuse. They also describe best-evidence approaches to clinical practice. Issues include: “1. Describe three examples of how children’s early attachment experiences with caretakers influence brain anatomy and physiology. 2. Describe the important psychosocial sequelae and factors associated with the neurobiology of maltreatment and attachment failures. 3. Describe the conceptual, empirical and clinical challenges and opportunities associated with the study of violence against children and a model for responding to these issues.” An important and groundbreaking project. Fair technical video quality but all in all, a really great lecture. [If you'd like to help provide aftercare for child sexual abuse, consider donating to RAINN.]
