Research emerging from Relational Neuroscience, including polyvagal theory, regulation theory, and the neurosequential model of development, has shifted our understanding of the origins of behavior. When parents, caregivers, and child development professionals are armed with the latest science about what behavior really is, they increase their capacity for connecting with dysregulated behavior in a way that promotes positive growth and development of the relational, social, and behavioral brain of the child. This workshop will briefly summarize the latest research from the relational neuroscience and then move into practical interventions that will help caregivers soothe difficult behaviors while promoting attachment, regulation, and stress resilience.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe how to interpret behaviors as information about the state of the child’s autonomic nervous system.

2. Describe how to encourage the development of the parasympathetic branch/ventral vagal nerve through mirroring and co-regulation.

3. List three activities that support the development of the regulatory parts of the brain, ultimately leading to improved behavior.
