This workshop will provide participants with a deeper understanding about the importance of infancy and toddlerhood. Relevant theories of neurodevelopment, attachment,and reflective functioning will be used to detail ways that this period of life is an efficacious time to implement two generation approaches designed to engage caregivers so they can promote secure relationships that optimize the chances for health,well-being and resilience of infants and toddlers. Participants will learn about specifics of infancy and early parenthood such as crying, feeding and sleeping,early language acquisition,and the unfolding of regulatory capacities that form the foundation for effective executive functioning in young children.Participants will learn about core approaches to engage families that build parental self-efficacy.Participants will also learn how relational approaches provide an effective means to address early adversity related to exposure to toxins,loss,and trauma. While grounded in theory,this workshop is meant to provide attendees with practical examples,a broad systemic view that considers many ports of entry,intervention approaches,and many opportunities to integrate content into the context of their own practices.
