Prevention Action, an online outlet that covers international efforts to improve child outcomes, reports on a recent publication by Center Director Jack P. Shonkoff and Center Senior Fellow Philip A. Fisher. Calling for the development of new early childhood intervention strategies based on science-driven innovation, Shonkoff and Fisher assert that interventions that strengthen the capabilities of adult caregivers can reduce potential sources of toxic stress while also helping build children’s executive function and coping skills.
