March 15th, Transformative Toxic Stress Intervention

This course will present a diverse set of innovative approaches to toxic stress. Approaches will include those in development and those more recently available, as well as those with a longer history. These approaches were selected for their promise and vary in the depth of contact needed, from very light touch to intensive. Emerging data will be shared and strategies for developing, adapting, and testing solutions within context will be discussed.
