The Neuropsychology of Stress, Trauma, and Emotional Dysfunction

The Neuropsychology of Stress, Trauma, and Emotional Dysfunction
By Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., NCSP, ABSNP
This webinar will explore the neural underpinnings of stress, trauma, and emotional dysfunction in children and its relative impact upon learning. Environmental deprivation, poverty, childhood abuse, witnessing violence, and parental neglect can impact both cognitive and social-emotional development in children. Schools can enhance emotional wellness through early prevention efforts, appropriate assessment strategies, and an improved learning climate to foster emotional growth for all students. The presentation will conclude with a discussion on how educators can become “trauma-informed” to better meet the diverse needs of learners. Specific classroom accommodations, school-based interventions, and targeted instructional strategies will be shared.
