The Developing Brain: Implications for Youth Programs

To contribute to the dissemination of new brain research as it applies to those
serving children and youth, Child Trends invited Jane Roskams, Ph.D., a leading
neuroscientist and executive director of strategy and alliances at the Allen
Institute for Brain Science, to speak. Dr Roskams is a long-standing researcher
in the field of brain repair and epigenetics. She revealed new developments
in our understanding of how the brain grows and learns, and how it adapts
to its environment and trauma. Following her presentation, Dr. Kristin Moore,
Child Trends’ senior scholar and past president, moderated a discussion on the
practical implications of shifting views on brain development and resiliency. The
discussion aimed to inform programs and policies that affect young people,
particularly at-risk children. It featured two repondents: Daniel Cardinali,
President of Communities In Schools, the nation's largest drop-out prevention
program; and Dianna Walters of the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative.
This research brief summarizes their presentations.
