- Participants will learn how attachment and trauma theory intersect and particularly how they help us understand the challenges to reflective practice.
- Participants will learn how to assess, define and recognize instances of parental reflective functioning.
- Participants will learn basic techniques for enhancing parental reflective functioning in young parents, and for managing failures of regulation.
- Participants will learn about the outcomes of a longitudinal randomized clinical trial examining the impact of Minding the Baby® on health, attachment, and relationship outcomes.
Theories of attachment and reflective functioning provide a foundation for thinking about how we understand and work with parents and infants. And yet we face the pain of disrupted attachments and dysregulation in so many of our encounters with families. How can we help families repair and reflect while continuing to reflect and connect ourselves?
