Host, Dr. Catherine Cerulli, a professor of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester, is joined by her guest, Dr. Nancy Weaver, to discuss how we can apply communication sciences, analytics and public health principles to promote healthy and positive parenting to reduce the prevalence of childhood abuse and neglect. This podcast will inform us on how to develop our own resiliency to respond to this crisis by learning how to be a bystander through a novel intervention program, Support over Silence for KIDS. Dr. Weaver created the program to educate community member’s tangible skills to listen empathetically and non-judgmentally to parents and caregivers in situations where tensions rise to help deescalate what’s happening in the moment.
Dr. Weaver has a Ph.D. in Health Behavior and Health Education and an M.P.H. in Biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, as well as a B.S. in Mathematics and Statistics from the James Madison University.
