"The Science of Childhood Trauma and Family Separation: A Discussion of Short- and Long Term Effects"
As the U.S. federal government begins the process of reuniting children separated from their families at the U.S./Mexico border, experts will explore the research evidence on how such separation experiences impact children's well-being. Developmental scientists will shed light on what the research indicates for ongoing child well-being post-reunification. Topics will include issues such as:
- how the experiences of border detainees might compare to other cases of child separation such as when parents are incarcerated or deployed for military service,
- how child trauma affects brain development, and
- how the age of the child impacts the effects of these separation experiences.

Panelists:
Cynthia García Coll, Ph.D., Universidad Albizu
Gabriela Livas Stein, Ph.D., UNCG Department of Psychology
Nim Tottenham, Ph.D., Columbia University Psychology Department
Moderator: Duncan Fisher from Child and Family Blog
