Brain-Based Parenting: The Neuroscience of Caregiving for Healthy Attachment Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology

#ad
W. W. Norton & Company #ad - While the parent–child relationship can generate deep empathy and the intense motivation to care for our children, it can also trigger self-defensive feelings rooted in our early attachment relationships, and give rise to “unparental” impulses. The biggest challenge to parents, hughes and Baylin explain, is learning how to regulate emotions that arise―feeling them deeply and honestly while staying grounded and aware enough to preserve the parent–child relationship.

Learning to be a “good parent” is contingent upon learning how to manage this stress, understand its brain-based cues, and respond in a way that will set the brain back on track. Infused with clinical insight, illuminating case examples, and helpful illustrations, Brain-Based Parenting brings the science of caregiving to light for the first time.

In this groundbreaking exploration of the brain mechanisms behind healthy caregiving, attachment specialist Daniel A. An attachment specialist and a clinical psychologist with neurobiology expertise team up to explore the brain science behind parenting. W w norton Company. To this end, hughes and baylin define five major “systems” of caregiving as they’re linked to the brain, explaining how they operate when parenting is strong and what happens when good parenting is compromised or “blocked.

The Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy: Enhancing Connection & Trust in the Treatment of Children & Adolescents Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology

Throughout, vibrant clinical vignettes drawn from the authors' own experience illustrate how informed clinical processes can promote positive change. Authors baylin and hughes have collaborated for many years on the treatment of maltreated children and their caregivers. What do abuse and neglect do to the development of children's brains that makes it so difficult for them to trust adults who are so different from those who hurt them? This book presents a brain-based understanding that professionals can apply to answering these questions and encouraging the development of healthy trust.

The Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy: Enhancing Connection & Trust in the Treatment of Children & Adolescents Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology #ad - Both experienced psychologists, mistrust, their shared project has bee the development of the science-based model of attachment-focused therapy in this book―a model that links clinical interventions to the crucial underlying processes of trust, and trust building―helping children learn to trust caregivers and caregivers to be the "trust builders" these children need.

The book begins by explaining the neurobiology of blocked trust, using the latest social neuroscience to show how the child's early development gets channeled into a core strategy of defensive living. Subsequent chapters address, how new research on behavioral epigenetics has shown ways that highly stressful early life experiences affect brain development through patterns of gene expression, among other valuable subjects, adapting the child's brain for mistrust rather than trust, and what it means for treatment approaches.

Finally, readers will learn what goes on in the child's brain during attachment-focused therapy, calm this system, and reopen the child's potential to learn from new experiences with caring adults, honing in on the dyadic processes of adult-child interaction that seem to embody the core "mechanisms of change": elements of attachment-focused interventions that target the child's defensive brain, and that it is safe to depend upon them.

If trust is to develop and care is to be restored, clinicians need to know what prevents the development of trust in the first place, particularly when a child is living in an environment of good care for a long period of time.
