Biocultural Research on Stress & Resilience | Prof. Catherine Panter-Brick, Yale

April 12, 2019

“For my mind, science has power. It helps you make very interesting partnerships including with families themselves who want people to know about the intergenerational consequences of stress, trauma and the violence of war, and what can be done about it.”


Description

This presentation exemplifies a biocultural framework for measuring stress and resilience amongst populations living under challenging circumstances.  It also builds the evidence regarding efforts to evaluate program effectiveness - ‘putting interventions to the test’ - with examples drawn from humanitarian work with Syrian refugees in Jordan.  It concludes on the importance of partnerships.

ABOUT THE EARLY CHILDHOOD PEACE CONSORTIUM (ECPC)

The ECPC was established to grow a global movement for peace, social justice and prevention of violence through using evidence-informed strategies to enable the world community to advance peace, security and sustainable development. We must address root causes of violence and conflict, and we must empower children and families to be agents of change to advance social cohesion and peace.
