Researching Public Law and Public Policy in the Public Interest
CLiME is proud to to announce the launch of our new blog endinequality which will serve as a digital portal for public scholarship on structural inequality, and innovative approaches to tackling inequality, in an effort for us all end-in-equality.
It is with great pride that the Rutgers Center on Law, Inequality and Metropolitan Equity (CLiME) announces the release of our literature review for the Trauma, Schools and Poverty Project (TSP). "A Critical Review of the Psychological Literature" provides a critical and comprehensive review of the empirical literature literature on the sequelae of childhood exposure to potentially traumatic events (PTEs), with special emphasis on low socioeconomic status populationsat disparate risk for exposure to PTEs across the lifespan.
