‘The Child’s Brain’ is topic of workshop

Staff reports

The parenting program at Family Support Council will do a special presentation, “The Child’s Brain,” at the Women’s Support Group Monday, Sept. 27, 7-8:30 p.m., at the Family Support Council, 1255 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville. Free child care is provided.

The presentation will convey how domestic violence in the home affects a child’s brain. Thanks to new technologies, including powerful brain scans, scientists are now able to form a much clearer picture of the brain’s inner workings. These technologies have allowed new insights into early development.

This special presentation will share information and facts that will help all those who attend understand the impact of violence on a child’s developing brain.

RSVP by Sept. 24 by calling the Family Support Council, 782-8692.
