The lasting influence of early adversity on children’s brain development

Thursday, February 21st, 6:30-8:00pm at Aeronaut Brewing Company
(14 Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02144) (directions)

Dr. Katie McLaughlin is a clinical psychologist with interests in how environmental experience influences brain and behavioral development in children and adolescents. Her research examines how adverse environmental experiences shape emotional, cognitive, and neurobiological development throughout childhood and adolescence. Specifically, Dr. McLaughlin’s work seeks to understand how experiences of stress, trauma, and social disadvantage in childhood alter developmental processes, with the goal of informing the creation of interventions, practices, and policies to promote adaptive development in society’s most vulnerable members. Please join us for what promises to be an enlightening discussion!

We hope to see you then!
