Event Overview

Join the Drs. Schore as they share their many years of teaching and clinical experience working in the field of interpersonal neurobiological and modern attachment theory and technique to generate evidence-based psychotherapy models, with a special emphasis on its application to infants, children, and adolescents and their parents.

Participants will come away with the following learning objectives:

  • List recent findings on the involvement of the right brain in intersubjectivity and attachment functions.
  • Discuss how the stress-regulating circuits of the male brain mature more slowly than those of the female in the prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal critical periods.
  • Describe how maternal love shapes the maturation of the infant’s developing right brain
  • Compare the early differences between “quiet love” and “excited love.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to personally share the wisdom and insight of these two internationally recognized pioneers and better understand why they are being honored as our 16th Edna Reiss-Sophie Greenberg Chair.
