Virtual Speaker Series
Beyond Toxic Stress: Why Preventing Childhood Adversity is NOT Enough
Tuesday, November 16 at 5 p.m. MST
The concept of toxic stress may be more relevant than ever as we face structural racism; widening disparities in health, educational and economic outcomes; and a socially isolating pandemic. In order to build healthy, resilient children and advocates, family-centered homes need to be integral elements of community efforts to foster “relational” health.1
Join Clayton for this webinar as guest speaker Dr. Andrew Garner from Case Western Reserve Medical School and lead author of the American Academy of Pediatrics' new policy statement on Relational Health discusses the importance of fostering early relational health for young children.
