About This Event
As part of a larger campaign recognizing the 50th Anniversary of the “War on Poverty,” the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Office on Socioeconomic Status and Violence Prevention Office have partnered to present a free 60-minute Webinar in Commemoration of World Poverty Day. We are inviting professionals who work with low-income children and families in different capacities and settings and are interested in understanding 1) the neurological and psychological effects of poverty; 2) consequences of poverty on child development and family socialization; and 3) how to bolster resilience related to environmental stressors associated with poverty.
