Upcoming Event: Poverty, Chronic Stress, and New York’s Youngest Children


Center for New York City Affairs at The New School presents

a Child Welfare Watch forum:

Baby Steps: Poverty, Chronic Stress, and New York’s Youngest Children

 Friday, October 4, 8:30-10:30am

 Tishman Auditorium

Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 66 West 12th Street, Ground Floor

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., the Julius B. Richmond FAMRI Professor of Child Health and Development at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Harvard Graduate School of Education; Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital; and Director of the university-wide Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University.

 Followed by 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 at The New School

 Admission is free, but you must RSVP.

The Child Welfare Watch project is made possible thanks to the generous support of the the Ira W. DeCamp Foundation, the Child Welfare Fund, the Viola W. Bernard Foundation, the Sirus Fund, the Pinkerton Foundation, the Prospect Hill Foundation and the Milano Foundation.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Thanks for your article. I would love to say that your health insurance brokerage service
    also works well with the benefit of the actual coordinators of any group insurance plan. The
    health insurance professional is given a
    list of benefits sought by an individual or
    a group coordinator. What a broker will is find individuals and
    also coordinators which usually best match those needs.
    Then he gifts his recommendations and if all parties agree, the particular
    broker formulates a contract between the two parties.

    Asking questions are truly pleasant thing if you are not understanding anything completely,
    but this paragraph provides nice understanding even.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas on this blog.
    Additionally, a myth regarding the lenders intentions
    any time talking about foreclosure is that the lender will
    not getreceive my repayments. There is a certain quantity of time which the bank will need
    payments in some places. If you are also deep inside the hole, they will commonly call that you pay that payment entirely.
    However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of repayments at all.
    Should you and the lender can manage to work one thing out, a foreclosure course of action may end.

    However, if you continue to skip payments in the new plan, the foreclosures process can just pick up where
    it left off.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to books, as I found
    this paragraph at this web site.
