Childhood Poverty: It’s in Your Bank and in Your Brain
What if I told you I could look at your brain and tell whether or not you were poor growing up? Would you believe me? What if I added there was a distinctly possible way to inoculate children against the detrimental effects of poverty with a few policy changes? It has been well observed that poor children tend to perform at lower academic levels than their richer classmates, and while environmental influences can in large part explain this gap, a child’s environment also impacts brain development and subsequent cognitive ability.
Resource of the Month
Addressing Trauma and Building Resilience in Children and Families: Standardized Patient Cases for Pediatric Residents
This resource is a 4-hour workshop for pediatrics residents on screening/managing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and delivering trauma-informed care. It includes 3 standardized patient cases focusing on: 1) an adolescent with ACEs; 2) ACE disclosure by a parent, and; 3) de-escalation. The workshop includes a 1-hour training, 2 hours for the standardized patient cases (~40 minutes per standardized patient), and a 1-hour debrief.
