Stress Learning Card

Palix Foundation

Stress, Brain Architecture

Palix Foundation,

This learning card provides a simple, visual explanation of the three categories of stress—positive, tolerable, and toxic—and how exposure to stress affects the developing brain. Supportive caregivers are essential to buffer the effects of negative experiences and prevent stress from weakening brain architecture and disrupting healthy development. This card is a free resource for any individual or organization to use and share.
