The Poverty Brain: Neuroplasticity and Mindfulness Interventions

Individuals living in poverty experience mental health disorders at a higher rate than the general population. Studies have demonstrated how poverty alters brain development which can lead to maladaptive patterns of social attribution and/or elevated physiological stress. Understanding how these brain changes impact client outcomes is critical for social work professionals. Social workers must also be aware of effective interventions to help mitigate the effects of poverty. This workshop will address how individuals living in poverty see the world, barriers to effective treatment, and evidence-based interventions that mitigate the effects of poverty.


1. Participants will learn about the impact of poverty on the brain.
2. Participants will understand how brain changes result in maladaptive patterns of social attribution and/or elevated physiological stress.
3. Participants will examine barriers to effective treatment.
4. Participants will understand how brain changes impact client outcomes.
5.Participants will review effective evidence-based interventions to mitigate the harmful effects of poverty.
