(free) Synchrony and the neurobiology of human attachments; How the brain basis of love fosters empathy, stress management, and resilience

Tuesday, February 11, 2020
University of Washington, Center for Child and Family Well-Being
Ruth Feldman, PhD

Synchrony and the neurobiology of human attachments; How the brain basis of love fosters empathy, stress management, and resilience

7:00 – 8:30 PM
University of Washington, Kane Hall, Rm. 120, 4069 Spokane Ln, Seattle, WA 98103

Registration is required. Register here.

Synchrony – the coordination of biological and behavioral processes between children and their caregivers during moments of social contact – provides the basis for social connectedness and charts a central process in the development of stress management, empathy, and the development of the “affiliative brain”.

In this talk, I will present our model on the neurobiology of human attachments in relation to the oxytocin system – the hormone system related to social bonding, and sometimes called the “love hormone.” This presentation will detail how the oxytocin system evolved to support the expression of synchrony at the genetic, brain, hormonal, and behavioral levels and how the mother-infant bond provides the neurobiological template for all other social affiliations throughout life: with fathers, close friends, romantic partners, and fellow-humans.

Next, I will present our research on the parental brain, addressing similarities and differences between the maternal and the paternal brain, and discuss how the human parental brain supports the development of socio-emotional competencies and the social brain in children, charting the cross-generational transmission of affiliation that enables humans to love, care, and adapt a life of meaning.

Finally, I will present findings from three cohorts of families who represent high-risk contexts, each followed from infancy to young adulthood, and demonstrate how disruptions to maternal-infant bonding, in contexts such as premature birth, maternal post-partum depression, and chronic trauma, impact children’s brain and behavior.  The talk will conclude with vignettes from a new intervention that help depressed mothers synchronize with their infants and minimize the level of intrusive behavior and by addressing the implications of our model for debates about mind-brain polarity.

At the end of the talk, participants will be able to

  1. Understand how the parent’s brain develops during the transition to parenthood and why it is important
  2. Learn about the role of oxytocin, the love hormone, in initiating the bond between parents and infants and how this bond develops through synchronous interaction to support resilience from infancy to adulthood
  3.  Know about the specific disruptions to the neurobiology of affiliation and caregiving behavior that characterize depressed mothers and potential avenues for treatment

Ruth Feldman, PhD is the Simms-Mann Professor of Developmental Social Neuroscience at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzlia in Tel Aviv. She holds a joint appointment at Yale Child Study Center. Dr. Feldman holds degrees in music composition, neuroscience, clinical psychology, and developmental psychology and psychopathology.  Her conceptual model on biobehavioral synchrony systematically describes how a lived experience within close relationships builds brain, creates relationships, confers resilience, and promotes creativity.  Her studies were the first to detail the role of oxytocin in the formation of human social bonds.

Nature & Nurturing: Parenting with Your Child’s Temperament in Mind

Saturday, January 25, 2020
University of Washington, Center for Child and Family Well-Being
Liliana Lengua, PhD

Nature & Nurturing: Parenting with Your Child’s Temperament in Mind

9:00 am – 12:00 pm
CCFW, 3903 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105

Register here.

Workshop Description

Is your child the one clinging to you at the door when you try to drop him off at a birthday party, too nervous to join the party? Or was your child the one that was so excited to get to the party that she darted into the street even after you just got done telling her to stay right by the car when she got out? Or did you not even make it to the party because your child was so frustrated and angry about having to wear a jacket that he broke down into a total crying and yelling fit?

And were you feeling self-conscious that other parents were viewing you as ineffective and not in control of your child?

Some of these challenging behaviors from our children can stem from their temperament – the emotional and self-regulation characteristics that they are born with. Many children present challenging emotional and behavioral responses to every-day situations, and these experiences can be very stressful for parents and families. It’s not always clear what is the most effective way to deal with these behaviors – should a parent use more negative consequences? More rewards? Be more firm? More gentle? Pick your battles? Stick to your guns? More importantly, children can present these challenging behaviors for very different underlying reasons depending on their temperament, and parents can be more effective if they understand the source of their children’s reactions. Little if any parenting advice that is available to parents provides the critical understanding of the role of children’s temperament in shaping children’s behavior and our parenting. This interactive presentation will provide an opportunity to learn about:

1. The sources of children’s temperament or individual differences in their reactions.
2. How temperament can elicit less-than-ideal parenting from even the best of parents.
3. How to parent more effectively with children’s temperament in mind.

Workshop fees

We will offer a sliding scale fee system for this workshop. You may choose from one of the following:

  • Community Fee $45 – this is a reduced fee to help make the course accessible to people who have limited financial resources, and work with children and families. This fee does not cover the full cost of the workshop and is subsidized by people paying at the Supporting Level.
  • Sustaining Fee $60 – This fee covers the actual cost of the course. Please select this price if you are able to pay the full workshop fee.
  • Supporting Fee $75 – Help make mindfulness and compassion workshops more accessible to people throughout the community. This fee covers the cost of the workshop and allows CCFW to continue offering subsidized fees for people working with children and families, or who have limited financial means

This course is eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs). 3 CEUs will be available for licensed psychologists, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors,  and social workers in Washington State. We cannot gurantee that these CEUs will be accepted in other states.

  • Developmental Conceptualization of Symptoms and Diagnoses of Children and Youth ()

    Wed, Jan 22, 2020 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PSThea
    Webinar

    Parents, teachers, and social care, health, and other professionals often have little appreciation for the normative developmental needs of children and young people, and how these conflict with social expectations and demands. Reviewing the bio-psycho-social preoccupations and challenges commonly associated with specific age ranges and juxtaposing these with the ages at which behavioral and emotional symptoms and diagnoses first or commonly are noted can sharpen and shift perspectives and approaches. A developmental model and alternative case conceptualizations of diagnoses of children and youth will be presented by Dr. Karen John, psychologist, is an independent researcher, training consultant, Adlerian psychotherapist, and a clinical and leadership supervisor and mentor.
