General Session: Paul Tough - The Hidden Power of Character

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Using the tools of science, author Paul Tough peels back the mysteries of character and traces the links between early childhood neurological development and environment. By showing how “nature” and “nurture” are intertwined, Tough explores how childhood stresses modify life success and the surprising ways that parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. Tough helps us understand “The Hidden Power of Character,” and how early adversity affects childhood emotional, social and cognitive development.
