Webinar – Developmental differences in children who have experienced adversity: Emerging evidence and implications for practice

Child, Family, Community, Australia.

Presenter: Dr Sara McLean

Emerging evidence from the field of trauma and neurobiology shows that childhood adversity and maltreatment affects children’s development and increases their vulnerability for a range of mental health concerns later in life. These developmental differences can include:

  • Difficulty with executive functioning
  • Diminished social reward
  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Enhanced threat bias

This webinar will outline emerging evidence on developmental differences in children that are linked to exposure to early adversity and toxic stress. In particular, this webinar will highlight four key developmental differences and the implications for psychologists, mental health social workers and therapeutic specialists.
