Steven Lucas, pediatrician and Associate professor at Uppsala University, is the invited guest and expert for this Sweden Talk. He leads the research group REACH, Research Enhancing Adolescent and Child Health. His research focuses on ways to promote children’s and young people’s health, prevent illness and identify health risks in the child’s environment and provide targeted interventions.
He has dedicated his career to research on how early experiences in our childhood affects our development. We will discuss what a childhood without violence actually means and what the law against child abuse has done for attitudes among Swedish parents.
Astrid Lindgren’s great grandchild, Johan Palmberg, will also join this webinar and read a part of Astrid’s famous speech “Never violence”.
