Translated into Spanish, this video and related brief outline basic concepts from the research on the biology of stress, which show that major adversity can weaken developing brain architecture and permanently set the body’s stress response system on high alert.
This video from the InBrief series, here in Japanese, addresses basic concepts of early childhood development, established over decades of neuroscience and behavioral research.
This 3-minute video, here in Japanese, adapts the visual sensibility of interactive game models to a video format. Based loosely on such games as “Guitar Hero,” “SimCity,” and “The Game of Life,” the video portrays how actions taken by parents, teachers, policymakers, and others can affect life outcomes for both the child and the surrounding community.
Watch this video, here subtitled in Norwegian, to learn how responsive exchanges with adults help children build the skills they need to manage stress and cope with adversity. The Norwegian subtitles for this video have been generously provided by RVTS Sør.
Todos queremos dar a nuestros hijos lo que necesitan para crecer al máximo de su potencial, y como padres desempeñamos un papel importante en su desarrollo. Pero nuestra crianza se ve afectada por los apoyos y dificultades de nuestra vida, incluyendo las experiencias que causan lo que se conoce como «estrés tóxico». Pero experimentar estrés tóxico no tiene que determinar quién somos o cómo actuamos, y hay cosas que podemos hacer para defendernos a nosotros y a nuestros hijos de los efectos de incluso el estrés más intenso.
In this infographic, here in French, learn more about Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, and how they relate to toxic stress and child development.
Extensive biological and developmental research shows significant neglect—the ongoing disruption or significant absence of caregiver responsiveness—can cause more lasting harm to a young child’s development than overt physical abuse, including subsequent cognitive delays, impairments in executive functioning, and disruptions of the body’s stress response. This edition of the InBrief series, here in Japanese, explains why significant […]
This video from the InBrief series outlines basic concepts from the research on the biology of stress, which show that major adversity can weaken developing brain architecture and permanently set the body’s stress response system on high alert. Science also shows that providing stable, responsive environments for children in the earliest years of life can […]
When the stress in your life just doesn’t let up, and it feels like you have no support to get through the day—let alone do everything you need to do to be the best parent you can be—it can seem like there’s nothing that can make it better. But there are resources that can help, […]
