Centenary University Lecture Series: Chronic Stress in Childhood: Negative Health Effects Across the Lifespan
Speaker: Tara Veerman, PhD, Associate Professor of Social Work and Sociology
This lecture will outline the deleterious physical and mental health effects of chronic stress in childhood. Issues such as poverty, child abuse, attachment, and natural disasters will be explored as they relate to brain development and the physiological stress response. They will discuss current evidence-based interventions for childhood stress and their effectiveness and explore how mind-body interventions may reduce physiological and psychosocial stress.
