About the webinar
Childhood trauma, in the form of maltreatment and neglect, is one of the strongest predictors of later mental health problems across the lifespan. However, the neurobiological mechanisms by which childhood adversity 'gets under the skin' remain poorly understood.
In this webinar, Professor McCrory will highlight the complex relationship between the brain, childhood trauma, the social world and mental health. He will argue that mental health and wellbeing are intrinsically relational phenomena, and it is erroneous to think of them as ‘located’ within an individual or their brain. Rather, we need to think of the brain as a socially embedded organ. The concepts of Stress Generation and Social Thinning will be introduced to illustrate this argument, and implications for prevention and intervention will be considered.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the webinar on Thursday 7 December has to be postponed until the new year. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please get in touch with email@example.com if you have any questions.
