The Legacy of the Early Years
April 28th, 2021 2 PM ET
Featuring Dr. L. Alan Sroufe, PhD
The Minnesota Longitudinal Study of Risk and Adaptation, a 45-year study of children born into poverty, offers a number of lessons for practitioners. Among these are the potency of early relationship experiences for predicting developmental outcomes and the fate of early experience following developmental change. This presentation will describe the lawfulness of both continuity and change in development, why early experience in so powerful, why change can be difficult, and why it is nonetheless possible. Case examples as well as group data will be provided.
Considering Culture when Assessing and Diagnosing Young Children
May 26th, 2021 1 PM ET
Featuring Marian E. Williams, PhD and Patricia P. Lakatos, PhD
“Culture” encompasses shared beliefs, values, rules, and practices. If we try to assess and diagnose developmental and mental health challenges without considering culture, we risk misunderstanding, misdiagnosis, and missed connections. This talk explores the intersection of culture and diagnosis, considering cultural explanations of a child’s difficulties, cultural factors related to the child’s environment, and cultural features of the relationship between the parents/caregivers and the clinician. Integration of these perspectives in the process of assessment and diagnosis will be illustrated with the use of a case vignette, with a particular focus on autism spectrum disorder.
