Pamela Cantor, M.D. Discusses The Science of Adversity in Working Capital Review Podcast

Turnaround for Children President and CEO Pamela Cantor, M.D. joined Working Capital Review’s Chris Riback for a podcast about the science of adversity. During the half-hour conversation, Cantor and Riback discussed Turnaround’s work translating the science of learning and development into tools and strategies for schools that can help all children unlock their full potential, especially those struggling with stress and trauma from adverse childhood experiences.

According to Riback, “As we consider the various challenges any nation faces, teaching our children, preparing them with the tools required to be successful, active players in a continually-evolving society is likely one of the most important and hardest. The challenge is particularly great for children who experience various forms of trauma… What’s required, from new insights to teacher training to school design and beyond, to help them succeed? It turns out science has something to say about this.”
