How Parents Talk About (& Don’t Talk About) Class Privilege
Luba Falk Feigenberg, EdD, is a developmental psychologist whose work focuses on children’s social, emotional, and ethical development. Currently, she serves as the Research Director at Making Caring Common, a project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education focused on helping parents and educators raise caring, ethical kids. Dr. Feigenberg has experience in a range of non-profit and educational settings, including schools, early childhood education, after school programs, the juvenile justice system, and community mental health. In this talk, Dr. Feigenberg will discuss findings from a study on how parents talk with their children about income inequality, differences in family income, and class privilege. She'll pay particular attention to the places where parents feel challenged in these conversations.
