Download and read online The Neurobehavioral and Social Emotional Development of Infants and Children Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology in PDF and EPUB Internationally recognized as one of the premier researchers on child development, Ed Tronick has held notable teaching positions and conducted vital research for nearly 30 years. Over the course of his esteemed career, he has received funding for hundreds of key studies in the US and abroad on normal and abnormal infant and child development—including his Mutual Regulation Model and Still-Face Paradigm, which revolutionized our understanding of infants’ emotional capacities and coping—all of which led to critical contributions in the field. Much of his work serves as the benchmark for how mental health clinicians think about biopsychosocial states of consciousness, the process of meaning making, and how and why we engage with others in the world. Now, for the first time, Tronick has gathered together his most influential writings in a single, essential volume. Organized into five parts—(I) Neurobehavior, (II) Culture, (III) Infant Social-Emotional Interaction, (IV) Perturbations: Natural and Experimental, and (V) Dyadic Expansion of Consciousness and Meaning Making—this book represents his major ideas and studies regarding infant-adult interactions, developmental processes, and mutual regulation, carefully addressing such questions as: What is a state of consciousness? What are the developing infant’s capacities for neurobehavioral self-organization? How are early infant-adult interactions organized? How can we understand the nature of normal versus abnormal development? How do self and mutual regulation relate to developmental processes? Is meaning making purely a function of the brain, or is it in our bodies as well? As a bonus, the book includes a DVD-ROM, with video clips of Tronick’s Still-Face Paradigm, an invaluable teaching aid. Please note that the ebook version of this title does not include a CD.

Download and read online Social Emotional Development in PDF and EPUB Find out what the research says about common early childhood program practices, such as playing "Simon Says" or holding children while feeding them—time-tested activities you intuitively know help young children. Social and Emotional Development explores the effectiveness of these early learning tools and helps answer the question, "Why do we do what we do?" Children in child care centers often spend large chunks of time on activities without an obvious academic component, such as learning to dance to different tempos. Research shows, however, that these activities promote children’s social and emotional development. This practical and accessible book explains the research behind many common, wise early childhood practices, as well as the shortcomings of others. Key topics include: How to help children form a strong attachment with an adult and foster a feeling of security. The importance of peer relationships and how to help children learn to take turns, develop empathy, and not act selfishly. Three forms of self-regulation: controlling impulsive behavior, developing problem-solving ability, and learning to regulate emotions.

Download and read online Social Emotional Assessment Evaluation Measure Seam in PDF and EPUB With this in-depth, easy-to-use tool, your program can reliably assess and monitor social-emotional development in infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at risk for delays or challenges. An ideal followup to screeners such as ASQ:SE, the two-part SEAM(tm) assessment reveals detailed qualitative information on childrenâe(tm)s social-emotional competence-- and identifies their caregiversâe(tm) strengths and areas of need. Easy to learn and implement, SEAM can be used by a wide variety of early childhood professionals, including those with little or no training in mental-health or behavioral interventions. SEAM helps your program: support development of important social-emotional skills in order to minimize challenging behaviors build strong, proactive partnerships with families promote positive parentâe"child interactions in the critical first years of life assist with developing developmentally appropriate goals and intervention activities monitor child progress toward social-emotional goals SEAM is a two-part assessment; All forms are available in English and Spanish on the CD-ROM or e-book. SEAM Tool The main SEAM includes three intervals with different developmental ranges: Infant (2-18 months), Toddler (18-36 months), and Preschool (36-66 months). Each interval assesses 10 child benchmarks critical to social-emotional competence, including empathy, adaptive skills, self-image, emotional responses, and healthy interactions with others. SEAM is flexible enough to meet your specific needs--parents/caregivers can complete it independently, or you can conduct it jointly with them if they need extra guidance. The SEAM system also includes SEAM with Ages, an alternate version of the tool annotated with a helpful list of age ranges for each item. This version makes it easy to give caregivers general guidance on how social-emotional skills typically develop and where their childâe(tm)s development fits on the continuum. SEAM Family Profile The Family Profile assesses parent and caregiver strengths and helps identify areas in which they need more supports and resources to foster their childâe(tm)s social-emotional skills. Like the main SEAM, the Family Profile assessment includes three intervals--Infant, Toddler, and Preschool. Each interval measures four benchmarks key to a nurturing home environment: responding to needs, providing activities and play, providing predictable routines and an appropriate environment, and ensuring home safety. List of SEAM benchmarks Child participates in healthy interactions Child expresses a range of emotions Child regulates social-emotional responses Child begins to show empathy for others Child attends to and engages with others Child explores hands and feet and surroundings (for infants)/demonstrates independence (for toddlers/preschoolers) Child displays a positive self-image Child regulates activity level Child cooperates with daily routines and requests Child shows a range of adaptive skills View the webinar recording of Using the Social-Emotional Assessment/Evaluation Measure (SEAM(tm)) with Young Children, presented by Jane Squires, Ph.D., and Misti Waddell, M.S.

Download and read online From Neurons to Neighborhoods in PDF and EPUB How we raise young children is one of today's most highly personalized and sharply politicized issues, in part because each of us can claim some level of "expertise." The debate has intensified as discoveries about our development-in the womb and in the first months and years-have reached the popular media. How can we use our burgeoning knowledge to assure the well-being of all young children, for their own sake as well as for the sake of our nation? Drawing from new findings, this book presents important conclusions about nature-versus-nurture, the impact of being born into a working family, the effect of politics on programs for children, the costs and benefits of intervention, and other issues. The committee issues a series of challenges to decision makers regarding the quality of child care, issues of racial and ethnic diversity, the integration of children's cognitive and emotional development, and more. Authoritative yet accessible, From Neurons to Neighborhoods presents the evidence about "brain wiring" and how kids learn to speak, think, and regulate their behavior. It examines the effect of the climate-family, child care, community-within which the child grows.

Download and read online Early Intervention The Next Steps in PDF and EPUB Early Intervention is an approach which offers a real opportunity to make lasting improvements in the lives of children, to forestall many persistent social problems and end their transmission from one generation to the next, and to make long-term savings in public spending. It covers a range of tried and tested policies for the first three years of children's lives to give them the essential social and emotional security they need for the rest of their lives. Yet the provision of successful evidence-based Early Intervention programmes remains persistently patchy, and dogged by institutional and financial obstacles. In consequence, there remains an overwhelming bias in favour of existing policies of late intervention at a time when social problems are well-established. The report outlines crucial areas of brain development where the first three years see 80 per cent of the brain developed. Chapters 3 and 4 explore the social and economic benefits of Early Intervention. Chapter 5 explores the key themes of the first half of the report in the context of current policy and practice. The most effective Early Intervention Programmes and their cost effectiveness are covered in Chapter 6. It lists 80 programmes which fulfil this criteria, with 19 in the top category. Chapter 7 acknowledges the importance of local rather than central institutions in providing the best universal and targeted services. Finally, the prime recommendation of this report is the creation of a new, independent Early Intervention Foundation to encourage progress in this area.
