Risky Beginnings: Examining Case Stories about Effective Intervention with Young Children and Families – Dyadic approaches in helping young children at risk and their families

Dr. Pat Crittenden, Family Relations Institute, Miami and Dr. Charles Zeanah, Sellars Polchow Professor of Psychiatry, Tulane University  July 20-21  Bellevue  WA  

The theme is intervention with young children and families and what we can learn by examining their stories. The effects of violence, abuse and neglect, persistent stress and fear, and maternal depression on early social emotional development can result in mental health disorders. You will learn a new set of attachment organizations and how they are relevant to decision-making about young children and families, how to implement effective new approaches to improve parent-child relationships and how psychotherapy will change behaviors. Held at the Hyatt Regency.
