Crisis as Opportunity: Building Community Bridges to Address Trauma

Housed in both Minneapolis, MN and Rochester, NY, the Transform Research Center recognizes that our communities and our nation have been struggling with many challenges that have been vividly highlighted over the past year. Across the United States communities have been suffering from the consequences of the pandemic. Black communities and communities of color have been grappling with the collective trauma brought on by systemic and institutional racism.

 Join us in a conversation about the impacts of these traumas on our communities, and about ways to work towards community resilience. To address the many complex issues facing our communities we must work across systems, sectors, and disciplines, to build bridges to foster solutions.

Early Life Adversity and Adolescent Development: A Focus on Brain Development and Substance Use

Caregiving deprivation and maltreatment during childhood have impacts on adolescent development, including neural and behavioral development. This talk will review what has been discovered in research examining the impact of institutional orphanage care and child maltreatment on brain development and the development of substance use and disorder.  These findings will then be discussed in the context of adolescence and how this developmental period is a crucial time of risk and opportunity following early life adversity.

Presenters:  Elizabeth Handley, Ph.D., Director of Research at Mt. Hope Family Center and an Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester.  Max Herzberg, Ph.D., post-doctoral research scholar in the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis
