9th Annual Conference On Infant Mental Health: Toward A Neuropsychology Of Thriving
Weaving together interdisciplinary early development, positive psychology, and affective neuroscience research, Dr. Marcy Axness will discuss what the young child needs from parents and other significant adults in their environment for optimally healthy brain development. Emphasis will be on the social brain, and -- as comprehensively mapped out in her recent book Parenting for Peace -- how to hardwire the next generation(s) with brain circuitry for such essential peacemaker capacities as self-regulation, self-reflection, imagination, trust and empathy. This is also preventive intervention on an array of today's rampant disorders, including sensory processing and attention-deficit. Included will be practical, parent-friendly tools that incorporate and harness these findings in a simple, seamless way.
There may be many networking opportunities at the 9th Annual Conference On Infant Mental Health: Toward A Neuropsychology Of Thriving. Find out more in the event details below.
