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

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

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:

  • 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.

(Webinar) Autism and Attachment: Does my child love me?

Dr. Jule Epp, Dipl-Psych is a psychologist resides in Berlin, Germany.

Quite often Dr. Jule Epp has heard parents of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) telling her these painful truths: “When I come into the room, he doesn’t even notice me.” “When I try to hug her, she pushes me away.” “Whenever I try to be with him, he tells me he wants to be by himself.” Or even “She only comes to me when she wants something, when she needs me to get something for her. She doesn’t see me as a person.”

Adults working with children or adolescents “on the spectrum” are often feeling very unsure of themselves. The child’s behaviour suggests an aloofness, even an aversion to contact. Many parents and caretakers understandably feel rejected by their child. And so the deeply troubling question arises: Do I really matter to this child? Does my child love me?

In this webinar, Jule Epp will explore both perspectives: that of the child diagnosed with ASD and that of the parent or caretaker. The webinar will also address how we can understand the desperate move to resist attachment that we see in the child diagnosed with ASD. It will explore how this rejecting behaviour can make us as adults feel and how we tend to respond to it. And it will explore how we can break through the vicious circle of alienation that can ensue between adult and child when the defensive behaviour of the child is misunderstood. What the child diagnosed with ASD needs from us as adults is concrete support – best given in the context of play and with respect for the individual sensitivities of the child – in order to develop the deep, loving attachments both child and adult are yearning for.

Free 7-week Positive Discipline Parenting Course (Lynnwood)

Positive Discipline 7-Week Series

Do you think raising kids today is a lot different than when you were a child or when your parents were children? Well, you’re right. Role models have changed since the 1950’s where children were often “seen but not heard.”

Positive Discipline effectiveness extends to any child from the “terrible twos” to a “defiant teen” so they can be supported in becoming respectful, cooperative, and responsible. This is an opportunity to practice for the skills necessary to feel more confident on the parenting arena.

If:

  • You find yourself doing a lot of talking and feel your children aren’t listening,
  • Continue to deal with the same misbehavior over and over,
  • Have concern that your children are out of control,
  • Feel that parenting is too much work, or
  • You are interested in putting an effective, practical parenting approach to work in your family

Positive Discipline will help you (among many other things):

  • Create an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect in your home
  • Minimize sibling rivalry
  • Reduce power struggles (such as homework, screen time, chores, etc.)
  • Understand the belief behind the behavior
  • Help children achieve self-discipline and problem-solving skills
  • Be more effective as a parent and have fun in the process

Date: Every Thursday from July 18 to August 29, 2019

Time:   6:30pm to 8:30pm

Location:  Verdant Community Wellness Center – 4710 196th St SW  Lynnwood, WA 98036
