Research is revealing that the typical youth brain is not capable of true adult functioning until 20+ years of age – information that has critical implications in terms of cause and effect understandings, critical thinking skills and maturation. For youth who have experienced foster care and adoption, this developmental process can be significantly affected. This training explores the links between brain development and trauma recovery; identifying opportunities and effective strategies for parents and providers alike.
Presented by Kim Stevens, an internationally acclaimed speaker and a project manager at NACAC. She is the adoptive parent of four children from foster care, and offers training on a wide variety of topics. 2014.
