The Roots of Empathy Symposium May 16th & 17th in Toronto
Come discover the neuroscience of children’s development, mental health and wellbeing. What are the pieces of the brain puzzle we need to understand to support children? How does touch promote infant growth and wellbeing? Why are some brains wired for altruism and others for psychopathy? How do epigenetics and environmental factors influence maternal behaviour and shape infant development? And what is the neuroscience of creativity?
We’re bringing together leading neuroscientists for two days of knowledge sharing and conversation. If you study, teach or support children, you will want to hear what these scientists have learned and how it can inform your work.
“We need to get better at ensuring that the children we raise are given the same intentional proactive gifts of social emotional health as they are getting through our intentional actions to grow cognitive skills.”
– Dr. Bruce D. Perry, Senior Fellow of the Child Trauma Academy (Houston, TX) and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioural Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine (Chicago, IL)
