Ending Intergenerational Cycles of Conflict in Families Around The World: A Practical “Chalk Talk”
Family conflict can be passed from one generation to the next in families, and leads to pernicious social impairment and psychopathology in both children and grandchildren. Recent work by developmental psychopathologists reveals that these intergenerational cycles of family conflict and psychopathology are sustained by externalizing and depressive pathways, and mitigated by early intervention with behavioral parent training programs. Yet, questions abound about how to use this knowledge base to a)understand the nature of such intergenerational cycles around the world, b)identify how to provide behavioral parent training programs around the world, and c)ensure families around the world engage in these programs. In this “chalk talk”, Drew Rothenberg attempts to provide practical answers to these questions based on his own work and ideas for future research. Discussion will include consideration of novel quantitative techniques to understand the prevalence of intergenerational family conflict worldwide, the embedding of interventions in trusted community institutions, the training of paraprofessional health workers, and the use of technology-augmented therapies. Drew will also be ecstatic to hear feedback on, and questions about, his ideas throughout this conversation-oriented “chalk talk”. 

A light lunch will be served during this talk.

Dr. Rothenberg is a candidate for the Population Health Initiative Joint Hire position in Psychology and Global Health. This lecture is free. No registration needed.
