Building Core Capabilities for Life – from Center on the Developing Child

Adults need certain capabilities to get and keep a job, provide responsive care for children, manage a household, and contribute productively to the community

When these skills have not developed as they should, or are compromised by the stresses of poverty or other ongoing adversity, our communities pay the price. 

This report combines research from the biological and behavioral sciences with practical, on-the-ground knowledge from working with adults and families to provide effective solutions for helping individuals develop more effective skills for coping with adversity.
