The Everyday Mind – Interplay of Stressors and Psychological Impact

October 26 @ 8:00 am - 11:45 am


Tailored for child-serving social workers, therapists, and psychologists, this presentation provides a comprehensive exploration of the child and adolescent brain, alongside the profound impacts of anxiety, depression, and trauma on its development. Attendees will delve into developmental milestones and critical periods shaping cognitive and emotional growth. This knowledge will be the foundation for discussion on the intricate interplay between psychological stressors and neural architecture, influencing emotional resilience and cognitive pathways. The presentation will not only facilitate analytical insights but also foster collaborative discussions, encouraging participants to apply their understanding through case studies and practical scenarios. Ultimately, attendees will gain actionable insights to enhance their intervention strategies and positively influence the well-being of the youth they engage with.
