The 2018 Child Study Center's Lois Bloom Lecture
Mary Dozier, Ph.D., Unidel Amy Elizabeth du Pont Chair in Child Development, Director of Clinical Training, University of Delaware
Abstract: Dr. Dozier will consider the effects of different types of early adversity on children’s functioning, and factors that affect children’s ability to recover behaviorally and biologically following adversity. The types of adversity considered will include parental neglect, maternal opioid dependence, foster care, and orphanage care. An intervention, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC), has been developed and adapted for parents of young children who have experienced these various forms of adversity. Recent findings from our randomized clinical studies will be presented, highlighting brain and behavioral outcomes from middle childhood.
