Event description

Description

Join the Iowa Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Assocation for a day of learning with David Oppenheim, PhD.

In his presentation, Parental Insightfulness into the Inner World of the Child: Its Importance for Children's Healthy Socioemotional Development, Dr. Oppenheim will discuss parent insightfulness as well as related constructs from Bowlby’s attachment theory, measures of these constructs as well as research findings, and their role in work with children and families. Learning objectives are as follows:

    1. Understand the concept of insightfulness and how it is assessed
    2. Understand why insightfulness has an impact on children's socioemotional development
    3. Become familiar with research findings about the implications of insightfulness for attachment in children, including children with developmental disabilities.
    4. Learn the interplay between insightfulness and parental reaction and acceptance of the child's clinical diagnosis (eg: autism).
    5. Become familiar with research findings about insightfulness as a buffer against stress, insightfulness of adolescents, and insightfulness of mothers and fathers and its implications for triadic interactions
    6. Discuss clinical implications of insightfulness.

David Oppenheim, Ph.D. is Professor and former Chair in the Department of Psychology and a member of the Center for the Study of Child Development at the University of Haifa, Israel. Dr. Oppenheim’s research focuses on the central importance of attachment relationships for children’s social and emotional development. In particular, his research has examined the role of parental Insightfulness and parent-child open communication in the organization of attachment relationships throughout childhood. Dr. Oppenheim’s studies on these questions involved longitudinal studies, and included typically developing children, children at high risk such as those in foster care and those whose parents experienced trauma, and children with atypical development such as Autism and Mental Retardation. In addition to a focus on basic research, Dr. Oppenheim's writing and teaching stresses the clinical application of developmental research for work with young children and their families. This includes work of mental health professionals and also the work of other professionals working with young children experiencing stress or with special needs.
