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 Medicine at 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

Product ID: ANP

 

Patricia M. Crittenden, PhD

This 3-day course focuses on the development, prevention, and treatment of psychological disorder. It weaves together theory, human development, assessment, case examples, and treatmentapplications to reframe maladaptive behavior in terms of strategies for self-protection. The course focuses on development from infancy to adulthood, emphasizing the process of adaptation and developmental pathways that carry risk for psychopathology. The model used is the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) of attachment and adaptation developed by course instructor Patricia M. Crittenden, Ph.D.

Promoting First Relationships® Workshop - May 22 & 23, 2018 - Seattle


Product ID: PFR-SEA

Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-3) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing and responsive relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships® workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships program integrates theory, practice, and intervention. Trainers use various learning approaches including case studies, role-playing, and reflectivdialogue. These approaches allow participants to apply the framework directly to issues faced in their work environment.  In this 2-day workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work, whether in high risk, special needs, child care, or other early childhood fields. The strategy can be used one-on-one with parents (in clinic or the home) and also with child care providers and early childhood teachers responsible for group care. Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to the intervention and gain competence, and thus investment in their caregiving.

What participants are saying . . . 

"I loved the video examples which really helped illustrate the principles."

"Straightforward and doable, lots of real life examples and opportunity to reflect in groups."

"I liked how the case studies cemented the concepts."

This workshop is eligible for 15 CEU's, purchase above.
