Poverty, we often hear it discussed as a societal concern, but how well do we really understand the implications. Is all poverty the same or are there subcultures of which we should be aware? What are the effects of poverty on brain development and long-term outcomes? Where is our best hope for intervention? Join us as we take a deep dive into the cultural and psychological impacts of poverty.
