Early Experiences and Brain Development: Translating Science to Optimize Mental Health Interventions

March 17 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am MDT


EXPERT: Dylan Gee, PhD

Understanding how the brain develops during childhood and adolescence, and how brain maturation is affected by stress, is critical to identifying risk for psychiatric disorders and optimizing treatments. This talk will highlight developmental changes in the neural circuitry that supports fear regulation and how stress affects this development. Findings will be discussed in terms of their implications for identifying sensitive periods of neurodevelopment and translating research in developmental affective neuroscience to inform clinical interventions for anxiety and stress-related disorders.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify changes in brain development associated with stress and psychiatric disorders
  • Compare approaches to evaluating the effects of stress on brain development and mental health
  • Apply knowledge about the developing brain in clinical practice for child and adolescent mental health
