Neurobiological and Psychological Development in Contexts of Economic Hardship
Paul Hastings, Professor of Psychology, UC Davis

In the U.S.A., approximately 20% children and adolescents live in poverty and more than double that number live in families experiencing chronic economic hardship. Those figures are higher for many ethnically and racially diverse communities in the U.S.A., and higher still for many other nations, particularly in the Global South. Growing up in contexts of poverty and economic hardship exposes children to pervasive and multi-faceted stressors that may shape their developing neurobiological systems and psychological adjustment in complex, enduring and disadvantageous ways.
