I have researched for the past year on this topic. It is a fascinating topic and I will not get tired of learning new ways of presenting the functionalities of the brain. In this course I learned new, more simple ways to teach on this topic. I will definitely use these techniques and examples. Very comprehensive and educational ways to understand and learn or teach. I enjoyed this conference very much.

Both presenters gave an informative and engaging presentation without losing the audience in difficult terminology or in-depth descriptions of the brain. I feel better informed about what toxic stress is, how it it impacts the children we work with, and the ways to mitigate the long-term effects.
