Using Brain Science to Create New Pathways out of Poverty

EMPath (formerly Crittenton Women’s Union) CEO and Frontiers of Innovation associate Beth Babcock spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet about taking a science-informed approach to breaking the cycle of poverty. Her talk explains how poverty impairs the development of executive function in the brain, and shares the success of new coaching models that allow clients to practice and rebuild their executive function skills. One of these coaching models is being expanded and tested by the Intergenerational Mobility Project, a collaborative effort between the Center on the Developing Child and EMPath.
