"Self-regulation starts at birth, in fact even in utero."
- Dr. Stuart Shanker
Join Dr. Shanker for a fascinating, in-depth look at stress and energy in the world of a newborn. Hear an illuminating discussion of relevant neuroscience findings of the past 40 years and what they mean for our understanding of infants and their basic needs.
Topics Include :
- Human newborns are “neurologically premature.” What does that mean for how they are affected by stress and energy?
- Newborns need external regulation from caregivers, but, even so, they self-regulate, sometimes in ways that might surprise you.
- Parents and caregivers “transfer energy” to infants. How does that work?
- Intriguing revelations about infant sleep
- How babies’ behaviour, stress and energy affect adults and what that tells us about caregiving.
