Socioeconomic Inequality and Child Development


This workshop will survey the state-of-the-art research into how socioeconomic inequality relates to children’s cognitive and brain development. We will consider links between socioeconomic adversity and both behavioral and brain development. We will consider evidence for interventions, with a focus on plasticity and resilience. Throughout the day, we focus on the ability to evaluate, critique and interpret scientific evidence as it relates to the neuroscience of adversity.

Learning Objectives

Participants Will:

  1. Define socioeconomic status (SES)
  2. Describe links between SES and behavior
  3. Describe links between SES and brain development
  4. Describe links between SES and life achievement outcomes

Presenter Biography

Kimberly Noble, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Neuroscience and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. As a neuroscientist and board-certified pediatrician, she studies how socioeconomic inequality relates to in children’s cognitive and brain development. Her work examines socioeconomic disparities in cognitive development, as well as brain structure and function, across infancy, childhood and adolescence. Along with a multidisciplinary team from around the U.S., she is a principal investigator of Baby’s First Years, the first clinical trial of poverty reduction in the first three years of life. Dr. Noble received her undergraduate, graduate and medical degrees at the University of Pennsylvania. She was the recipient of the Association for Psychological Science Janet Taylor Spence Award for Transformative Early Career Contributions, and is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science. Her work linking family income to brain structure across childhood and adolescence has received worldwide attention in the popular press.  

This event is being held in conjunction with the Institute for Parenting.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education hours. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds for cancellations made seven working days or fewer before the event for any reason—or for no-shows.  We can provide credit towards a future workshop up to 24 hours before the event. After that, no credit will be issued.
