About the Training: Research on the human brain is moving ahead at an ever-increasing pace, and it can inform our decisions about where to put our therapeutic resources. This class takes a brief but informative look at some of the latest thinking about the care and treatment of children and youth who have adapted to adversity out of necessity but now find themselves in situations where those adaptations are no longer necessary or appropriate.
