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
