Our goal is to build a bridge between our knowledge of the brain’s explosive development during the first two years and our everyday experience of babies and toddlers.  If they’re learning so much, why are babies so distractible, fussy, and unpredictable?  They certainly don’t act like budding geniuses – or do they?  Guided by a developmental psychologist who is President of the Board of Directors of ZERO TO THREE, we’ll learn that babies do not think like adults do, and that understanding how to think like a baby can help us understand better their reactions and feelings.

This event is for a global audience of parents, professionals, and community members and addresses why this matters for early childhood & parenting education.  The talk touches on four concepts that can help in this process.

• Survival - four questions that newborns need to figure out

• Statistical learning - language development

• I can't help myself - self regulation

• Paris - overwhelming stimulation


FEATURED SPEAKER: Ross A. Thompson is a distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Davis where he directs the Social & Emotional Development Lab. Thompson studies the development of positive social motivation in young children, including prosocial behavior, conscience (moral) development, and emotion understanding.
