About the Training:

Poverty can have a synergistic and pervasive negative impact on developing brains. Given the many developmental windows occurring in childhood, poverty often wreaks havoc on the brain’s ability to grow and function optimally. For many children, youth and families, the pandemic thrust them into poverty or exacerbated an existing impoverished experience. In this workshop, participants will learn the specific impact of poverty on the developing brain, the outcomes of that impact in the classroom and the community, and the interventions that can be used to overcome poverty’s effects. Specific, research-based strategies for combating the negative impact of poverty on learning and behavior will be introduced for children and youth. Consisting of eight (8) fundamental practices, these strategies constitute the “Enrichment Model” and provide a coherent, sensible and “doable” method for counteracting poverty influences on learning and behavioral health.
