PRFDHR Seminar: Promoting maternal mental health and early childhood development in communities exposed to violence and forced displacement in Colombia, Professor Andrés Moya

By the end of 2020, 1 out of every 6 children was living in a region affected by violence and armed conflict. Repeated and traumatic exposure violence at an early age can severely affect children’s mental health and can therefore hinder healthy development and derail their life trajectories. In this paper Professor Moya and his co-authors report the results from a cluster-based randomized trial of Semillas de Apego, a community-based psychosocial model for mothers of young children affected by violence and forced displacement.

Latin American Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Annual Conference

From diverse academic disciplines, we use a gender analysis to understand, transform, and repair the social world. For many of us, activism is entwined with our research and teaching agendas. In LAIGN’s second conference, we want to make a space to recognize and imagine new convergences between the political and intellectual in gender studies.
