Purpose

This workshop convenes experts and researchers from within the juvenile justice system and in the fields of child development, cognitive neuroscience, learning disabilities, and emotional health to identify gaps in the research and identify areas for potential developmental initiatives. Additionally, experts from multiple disciplines will discuss what research is needed to better understand the extent of the neurobiological deficits that may be present in this population and to address the neurobehavioral hurdles incarcerated youth face when transitioned to society.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
