Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Southeast Asia, and Israel are places where children grow up in the shadow of war, the stress of which threatens to twist their development. Dr. Joshua Feder shares his work in these places to help caregivers; parents, teachers and others — help children to be calm, connected, and able embrace diversity and solve problems rather than be traumatized or radicalized. Dr. Feder will also touch on how this information can be helpful in understanding and addressing hate in our own communities.
Dr. Joshua Feder, a child and family psychiatrist, is known internationally as an engaging speaker, covering a range of topics, from developmental challenges and medications to diversity, peace building, and advocacy. Dr. Feder is also a Senior Expert for the Early Years in Belfast, traveling to conflict and post conflict regions to support peace building through early childhood care.
