Keynote: Dr. Stacey Patton
Stacey Patton, PhD
In this compelling keynote speech delivered at the 2023 Summit on Poverty, Dr. Stacey Patton takes us on a journey to explore the profound impact of childhood trauma, the critical link between corporal punishment and poverty, and the urgent need for a change in our approach to nurturing the next generation. As she so eloquently puts it, “Childhood is about surviving adults,” and it’s time for us to reflect on whether we want to be the kind of adults children merely survive or those who empower them to thrive.
