Working with Young Children and Families: How Understanding Development and Neurobiology Can Inform Your Practice

The development of a young child is profoundly influenced by experience.  Experiences shape the organization of the brain which, in turn, influences the emotional, social, cognitive and physiological activities.  Insights into this process come from understanding brain development.  Trauma, neglect, chaos, threat and abnormal patterns of emotional, social, cognitive and physical interactions with young children lead to an array of brain-related problems. This presentation will review clinical work and research that can help us better understand the impact of adverse experiences on childhood and then suggest new directions for clinical practice including discussions related to the importance of relational repetition, regulation and "dosing". 

Dr. Perry's presentation will:

  • Provide an overview of key principles of neurodevelopment crucial for understanding the role of experience in defining functional and physical organization of the brain
  • Describe the emerging clinical and research findings in maltreated children that suggest the negative impact of abuse, neglect and trauma on brain development
  • Outline the clinical implications of a neurodevelopmental approach to child maltreatement

About Dr. Bruce Perry:   Dr. Perry is the Senior Fellow of the ChildTrauma Academy, a not-for-profit organization based in Houston, Texas and adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicineat Northwestern University of Chicago. Dr. Perry is the author, with Maia Szalavitz, of The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog, a bestselling book based on his work with maltreated children and Born For Love: Why Empathy is Essential and  Endangered. His most recent multimedia book, BRIEF: Reflections on Childhood, Trauma and Society was released in 2013. Over the last 30 years,
