Dr. Diane W. Bales, a Human Development Specialist and Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia, will present on Early Neglect and Brain Development. Research has shown child abuse and neglect triggers a biological stress response that can damage key areas of the brain. Preventing child maltreatment and promoting Better Brains for Babies is essential to healthy brain development.
