    The 2018 Lipsitt-Duchin Lectures in Child and Youth Behavior and Development: "Creating Positive Futures: Resilience Starts in Infancy"

    Featuring Arnold Sameroff, PhD

    Arnold Sameroff is a developmental psychologist and one of the founders of the field of developmental psychopathology. His research concerns the multiple factors that contribute to mental health and illness, with a particular emphasis on resilience in the face of adversity. His “transactional model” has become central to understanding the interplay of nature and nurture in explaining the development of positive and negative outcomes for children. His presentation will address clinical and policy opportunities to promote the mental health of children and youth. 

    The Lipsitt-Duchin Lecture Series is co-sponsored by Brown University and Rhode Island KIDS COUNT

    RIAIMH's Spring 2018 Community Conversation Series continues to focus on our themes of Attachment and Relationship-Focused Practice, now in more complex circumstances. 

    The third Session of our Spring 2018 Series takes place on May 7, 2018.

    We are very excited to welcome back Susan Dickstein, PhD, whose presentation is titled:  Revisiting a Case of Early and Severe Trauma through the Lenses of Attachment and Relationship-Focused Practice

    Susan will revisit the Alicia Lieberman/Chandra Ghosh Ippen case we considered last Spring– this time with particular consideration of Attachment and the effects of the disruptions in the attachment relationships, as well as the work to support the best possible relationships for this child and family who have experienced trauma and relationship disruptions. 

    We look forward to seeing you there!
