Kenneth R. Ginsburg is an internationally-renowned expert in youth development and resilience. Dr. Ginsburg's clinical practice, teaching, research, and advocacy efforts focus on translating the best of what is known from research and practice into easy-to-use approaches to build resilience in teenagers. Adolescent brain science continues to demonstrate that safe, secure, long-term relationships can rewire the brain of children who have endured adverse experiences. Dr. Ginsburg will discuss ways to combine trauma-informed practices with the core principles of positive youth development and resilience-building to ensure adolescents in foster care have the opportunity to heal.
