Parent Workshop: Keys to Healthy Brain Development and Resilience

Brain science tells us what our children need to succeed.  As your child's greatest teacher and ally, learning the meaning of the science gives you a head start.  Early childhood is a period of explosive brain growth. The everyday interactions you have with your child build the architecture for later learning and support your child's ability to adapt and cope when faced with challenges.  Join Dr. Janice Gruendel for this informative workshop and walk away feeling confident in parenting your developing child. 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:  Janice M. Gruendel Ph.D. is a senior fellow with the Institute for Child Success and a member of the Harvard Center on the Developing Child’s Frontiers of Innovation Initiative, focused on expanding “science to policy” pathways that incorporate the research on brain development for America’s most vulnerable children and families. She led significant child welfare reform in the State of Connecticut where she served in the administrations of five Governors for nearly 20 years.
