Social   Emotional Development

Find out what the research says about common early childhood program practices, such as playing "Simon Says" or holding children while feeding them—time-tested activities you intuitively know help young children. Social and Emotional Development explores the effectiveness of these early learning tools and helps answer the question, "Why do we do what we do?" Children in child care centers often spend large chunks of time on activities without an obvious academic component, such as learning to dance to different tempos. Research shows, however, that these activities promote children’s social and emotional development. This practical and accessible book explains the research behind many common, wise early childhood practices, as well as the shortcomings of others. Key topics include: How to help children form a strong attachment with an adult and foster a feeling of security. The importance of peer relationships and how to help children learn to take turns, develop empathy, and not act selfishly. Three forms of self-regulation: controlling impulsive behavior, developing problem-solving ability, and learning to regulate emotions.

Research and Practice in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health

This book examines infant and early childhood mental health and the importance of early emotional and social development for later developmental trajectories. It incorporates research and clinical perspectives and brings research findings to bear in evaluating intervention strategies. By incorporating empirical developmental literature that is directly relevant to infant mental health and clinical practice, the book addresses the multiple forces which shape young children’s mental health. These forces include child factors, parental and familial variables, childrearing practices, and environmental influences. In addition, the book explores parent-child relationships, family networks, and social supports as protective factors, as well as risk factors such as poverty, exposure to violence, and substance abuse, which influence and change developmental processes. It shows that, by examining socio-emotional development in a cultural context, human development in the twenty-first century can be conceptualized through differences, similarities and diversity perspectives, focusing on the rights of every individual child.

Addressing Social Emotional Development and Infant Mental Health in Early Childhood Systems Building State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Series Number 12

Addressing Social Emotional Development and Infant Mental Health in Early Childhood Systems  Building State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Series  Number 12

The science of early development and our understanding of the impact of early experience on later social, emotional, and cognitive development has grown dramatically in the past three decades. Because the data are compelling and far-reaching, there has been increasing interest and concern about the quality of the infant's earliest experiences, and how those experiences shape the child's later development. The current state of knowledge should impact how every system that works with infants and families needs to contemplate and address the needs of our youngest citizens and their families (Shonkoff & Philips, 2000). In this report, the authors present an overview of infant mental health (IMH) and the principles that need to be considered when building systems to meet the social and emotional needs of young children. Because there are varying levels of needs for IMH services, as well as multiple ways in which children and families may access IMH services, and different pathways into the IMH service system, they describe a continuum of service delivery approaches that states can consider as they begin to develop and improve the performance of an infant mental health service system. Because IMH is a relatively new field of service delivery, evidenced-based guidelines about the most effective service delivery approaches are not always available, nor are there simple outcome measures. Thus, the authors present a number of suggestions about the organization and delivery of IMH services at the state level, as well as some of the problems that are likely to be encountered. Given the scarcity of trained IMH service providers they address training and workforce development. Because improving the delivery of IMH services requires better, evidence-based data, they also suggest outcome and evaluation needs. Finally, they address policy recommendations and strategies to achieve them. The following are appended: (1) Domains of the IMH Assessment; (2) Two States' Approaches to Developing Comprehensive Infant Mental Health Systems; (3) "Bottom Up" and "Top Down" Approaches to Building Early Childhood Systems of Care; and (4) Relevant Resources. (Contains 6 figures and 1 table.) [For related executive summary, see ED496850.

Language Memory and Cognition in Infancy and Early Childhood

This developmental research indicates that attention changes dramatically over the period of infancy and early childhood. ... allows the infant to engage in social interactions and maintain attentive states for socialemotional drives.

Language  Memory  and Cognition in Infancy and Early Childhood

Language, cognition, and memory are traditionally studied together prior to a researcher specializing in any one area. They are studied together initially because much of the development of one can affect the development of the others. Most books available now either tend to be extremely broad in the areas of all infant development including physical and social development, or specialize in cognitive development, language acquisition, or memory. Rarely do you find all three together, despite the fact that they all relate to each other. This volume consists of focused articles from the authoritative Encyclopedia of Infant and Early Childood Development, and specifically targets the ages 0-3. Providing summary overviews of basic and cutting edge research, coverage includes attention, assessment, bilingualism, categorization skills, critical periods, learning disabilities, reasoning, speech development, etc. This collection of articles provides an essential, affordable reference for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians interested in cognitive development, language development, and memory, as well as those developmental psychologists interested in all aspects of development.

The Neurobehavioral and Social Emotional Development of Infants and Children  Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology

Internationally recognized as one of the premier researchers on child development, Ed Tronick has held notable teaching positions and conducted vital research for nearly 30 years. Over the course of his esteemed career, he has received funding for hundreds of key studies in the US and abroad on normal and abnormal infant and child development—including his Mutual Regulation Model and Still-Face Paradigm, which revolutionized our understanding of infants’ emotional capacities and coping—all of which led to critical contributions in the field. Much of his work serves as the benchmark for how mental health clinicians think about biopsychosocial states of consciousness, the process of meaning making, and how and why we engage with others in the world. Now, for the first time, Tronick has gathered together his most influential writings in a single, essential volume. Organized into five parts—(I) Neurobehavior, (II) Culture, (III) Infant Social-Emotional Interaction, (IV) Perturbations: Natural and Experimental, and (V) Dyadic Expansion of Consciousness and Meaning Making—this book represents his major ideas and studies regarding infant-adult interactions, developmental processes, and mutual regulation, carefully addressing such questions as: What is a state of consciousness? What are the developing infant’s capacities for neurobehavioral self-organization? How are early infant-adult interactions organized? How can we understand the nature of normal versus abnormal development? How do self and mutual regulation relate to developmental processes? Is meaning making purely a function of the brain, or is it in our bodies as well? As a bonus, the book includes a DVD-ROM, with video clips of Tronick’s Still-Face Paradigm, an invaluable teaching aid. Please note that the ebook version of this title does not include a CD.
