Wednesday Lunch Hour - The Biology of Early Life Trauma and the Implications for Academic Success

Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Cross-disciplinary, developmental research offers educators new ways of conceptualizing academic challenges in the classroom.  This presentation provides attendees with a glimpse into the fascinating world of the developing brain in early childhood and reveals how trauma-related mechanisms, some of which can be traced back as far as infancy, can impact learning and social-emotional experiences in school settings. Intervention and prevention strategies will be considered.

Presented by Justin Russotti, Warner doctoral student, and Kathryn Douthit, Professor and Chair of the Counseling and Human Development Program.

A light lunch will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program will begin promptly at noon.

No need to RSVP. For any accommodation needs please contact Mary Judge at (585) 275-2454 or email at
