Prior to the work of John Bowlby, little was understood concerning the importance of early parenting. In early development infants learn how to regulate affect by having sensitive parents modulate arousal states. Insensitive parenting results in the child going through frequent negative affect states with poor ability to control it. What is eventually seen in children or adults is poor ability to function socially. Poor ability to regulate affect is often seen in many mental disorders, but especially personality disorders.

Two types of families have been studied: Type I: with a lot of marital problems and unresolved stress. Type II: spousal harmony, with sensitive and responsive parenting. Attachment organization in these families is quite stable, going from generation to generation. More recent studies have suggested that 95% of the secure group remains secure; 25% of the insecure become secure as adults

We will present evidence based primarily from my many years of working with such families. One of the first mistakes parents make I to believe that punishment and rewards will shape their children’s behavior. Kadzin has proposed a two factor treatment program involving problem-solving skills with the children and parent training that focuses on defining problem behaviors and appraising them differently.

Finally we will present information on applying mindfulness sessions done in the family every evening before bed. This involves breathing exercise, a short period of meditation, followed by emotional expressions of “the here and now.”

Why you should Attend:

This population is often seen in foster and adopted children. Ainsworth’s studies on the “stranger situation” showed that about 40% of all children are insecure. If parental figures are not available, infants brains do not develop in ways to allow them to regulate affect properly. Allan Schore documented this phenomenon in a series of brain studies. Many foster and adoptive parents have struggled with such difficult children. Dr. Foster Cline called them “The children of rage.” Most therapists are not trained to deal with such children. My wife and I raised three such children who are now in their forties. It was a great learning lesson and so this webinar will help therapists, teachers and parents deal more effectively with such children.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Some mothers and infants do not organize behavior to promote proximity
  • Infants learn how to regulate effect by having parents modulate arousal states
  • From birth to death are brains are being formed by our relationships
  • Survival depends on being wired to connect to those around us
  • Early neglect and abuse results in hyperactive limbic systems
  • Self-control in children begins at about 2 years of age
  • Insecure children have little ability to control emotions
  • Families evolve in either secure or insecure patterns that is replicated generation after generation
  • Neither praise nor punishment work well
  • Parent training and teacher training are the most effective interventions
  • Parent training of Kadzin involves reappraisal of problem behaviors
  • Mindfulness calms down the hyperactive limbic system
  • 'Quiet time' daily family session improves the relationships between parent and children
