Breaking the Cycle: The Grassroots History And Award-Winning Science Behind The Short Film

In this Monday LIVE presentation to the Association of Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health, APPPAH, Lisa Reagan, Kindred World’s co-founder and Kindred Media’s editor, shares the organization’s grassroots history as context for understanding and appreciating the award-winning nonprofit’s approach to creating initiatives and projects. She shares the consciousness-raising vision of Kindred World for championing the creation of the Evolved Nest Initiative, and its latest project, the Breaking the Cycle short film. Both ENI and Breaking the Cycle are based on the award-winning research of Darcia Narvaez, PhD, who now serves as Kindred World’s president.
