This workshop provides participants an overview of the newest research regarding the effects of chronic early childhood neglect and deprivation (ages 0-3). The workshop will be structured in the following format: 1) A comprehensive discussion on the effects of early childhood neglect on infant brain development, attachment styles, emotional regulatory processes, inhibitory control, and social/relational functioning, 2) long-term mental health trajectories, which include discussion of reactive attachment disorder (RAD) and disinhibited social engagement disorder (DSED), and personality disorders, and 3) a discussion of promising interventions that can serve to mitigate problematic emotional and behavioral disorders in children exposed to chronic neglect. Mental health professionals, educators, early childhood specialists, and child welfare and residential treatment workers are especially encouraged to attend.
