A young child's brain is making two million new connections every second as they build up learning power, trying to absorb and adapt to the amazing physical and emotional environment around them. If you take this into consideration you will appreciate that by gaining a greater understanding of how that takes place and what we can do to work with this wonderful process then our work will change forever.
In this half day session you will learn how and what takes place in the young developing brain, especially regarding the formation of warm, positive attachments with significant adults. You will see how this developing brain starts to process everyday experiences, make sense of sounds, sights, and physical experiences and acquire language. Participants will learn how we can help these maturing brains develop effectively and robustly. We will share strategies based on the very latest in neuroscience on how to make sure the foundations of social and emotional maturity are in place which can make a lifelong difference to a personís mental health and cognitive functioning.
