How Child Abuse and Neglect Impacts Learning: Resiliency Helps

Thu, 09/17/2020 - 12:00 PM

Youth who are maltreated might face a number of difficulties in the classroom, including social and academic problems. However, some maltreated youth show resilience, or the ability to overcome their adversities and succeed. This webinar will review the science of resilience and its applications to classroom settings. We will review potential consequences of childhood maltreatment that teachers might see in educational settings, as well as the ways that teachers can foster resilience among youth who have undergone child abuse and neglect.

Join URMC's Postdoctoral fellow Erinn Duprey, Ph.D, to learn more.

Hope Family Center’s Clinical Director, and Catherine Cerulli, an attorney and current Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Center and the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization, will share and translate evidence-based information regarding the consequences of parent-child separation into practical tools for lawyers. They will also share interviewing techniques and basic principles of trauma-informed lawyering skills needed when dealing with children and parents who have experienced separation.
