On November 5, at 1:00 p.m. eastern time, the 2014 Kristin Anderson Moore Lecture will present "The Developing Brain: Implications for Youth Programs." Kristin Anderson Moore, senior scholar and former president of Child Trends, will moderate this free hour-long webcast. Topics will include:
- How the brain grows and learns.
- How the brain responds to trauma, and how this response differs in children and adults.
- How environment, experience, and genetics affect the brain's response to challenges and the ability to learn.
- How programs can apply this research to help children and older youth.
