Stress & Learning Project
It all started when…
The Cities Stress and Learning Project includes a series of studies designed to reveal the effects of stressful life experiences on young people as well as processes that explain or influence stress effects. Researchers on the Stress and Learning Project are also working to develop a taxonomy of stressors that will provide a conceptual and empirical framework for linking specific types of stressors with specific processes and outcomes (i.e., an environmental counterpart to the human genome project). Results of Stress and Learning Project studies are used to develop effective interventions for youth exposed to severe and chronic stress (e.g., Cities Mentor Project and Cities Mother Daughter Project). The Cities Stress and Learning Project has been supported by grants from the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the William T. Grant Foundation.
