Laurie Schoenberg,


Researchers over the last decade have verified the significance of brain development during the early childhood years.   Unfortunately, surveys regarding the general public knowledge of IECMH are significantly dissonant from the experts’ understanding.    For example, some surveys have revealed that the general public believes “things that happen before the age of 3 have no impact later in life.”   Of course this is a myth and in fact scientists have been able to validate those babies’ earliest relationships and experiences will shape the architecture of the brain and the foundation upon which all later learning, behavior and even long term physical health depend on.  All of society benefits from providing young children with a healthy environment in which to learn and grow.  Economists have also shown an impressive return on early childhood investment/resources to the public (i.e., decreased cost in special education, crime, welfare, and increased income taxes due to increased earnings).

Seminar participants will discover that babies come into this world totally dependent on their caregivers for the best opportunity for healthy social-emotional development.  We will discuss how the outcome of the quality of the relationship will set the pattern for all future relationships for the rest of the child’s life.  From an infant/young child’s perspective, caregivers are to be trusted, to love, comfort and provide all the resources to their ultimate survival.  Every child deserves the right to be a star in their caregiver’s eyes and to feel their love as unconditional.    Nurturing experiences directly influence the healthy growth of a young child’s brain. This information is essential in understanding a healthy brain promotes a securely attached child.  During these early years, a child’s brain has tremendous potential to develop appropriate circuitry, which will specifically support his ability throughout his life to accurately respond to situations from an emotionally balanced frame work. 


Courses meet the qualifications for Two CEU'S for LMFT's, LCSW's, LPCC's, and/or LEP's as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Course completion certificates will be given out at the end of the presentation. 

Cost: 10.00 .

Free to all SWRC members.
