Virtual Event: Infant Mental Health and Brain Development

Neuro-relational Development Presentation Screenshot

A child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing more than a million neural connections each second. Tune in to learn more about how brain development occurs within the context of relationships in infancy and early childhood.

  • Delve into key concepts such as “mind-sight,” “serve and return,” and experience dependency and expectancy, as they relate to neural development.
  • Discover how the limbic system and executive functioning are mediated through relationships and experience.
  • Examine the impact of trauma and toxic stress on brain development.

“It is through rich moment-to-moment interpersonal exchanges that a baby’s brain becomes engaged in a world of people and objects.”
