Baby Steps: Poverty, Chronic Stress & New York's Youngest Children

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs at
The New School.

Chronic stress and early trauma shape the brain development of very young children. Increasingly, research shows that innovative, early-life work with infants, toddlers and their parents can help prevent the need for much more costly interventions later on. Can we reduce the likelihood of abuse, neglect and mental illness in stressed-out, low-income families? What kinds of targeted interventions are working? And how should government and nonprofits respond? A conversation with experts in the field, and the release of the latest edition of Child Welfare Watch.

Keynote remarks by:
Jack P. Shonkoff, M.D.,
FAMRI professor of child health and development, Harvard School of Public Health

A conversation with:
Linda Lausell Bryant
, executive director, Inwood House
Susan Chinitz, professor of clinical pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Piazadora Footman, parent; editorial assistant at Rise, a magazine written by and for parents in the child welfare system; and Chances for Children participant
Benita Miller
, deputy commissioner of family permanency services, NYC Administration for Children's Services

Moderated by:
Andrew White,
director, Center for New York City Affairs, The New School
