The Science of Childhood Trauma and Family Separation: A Discussion of Short- and Long Term Effects Webinar

Thursday, June 28, 2018 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT 

Watch the recorded webinar.

As the U.S. federal government begins the process of reuniting children separated from their families at the U.S./Mexico border, experts will explore the research evidence on how such separation experiences impact children's well-being. Developmental scientists will shed light on what the research indicates for ongoing child well-being post-reunification. Topics will include:

  • How the experiences of border detainees might compare to other cases of child separation such as when parents are incarcerated or deployed for military service,
  • How child trauma affects brain development, and
  • How the age of the child impacts the effects of these separation experiences.
