(Re)Centering Relationships: Diversity-Informed Practice, Justice, Compassion, & Healing

Session Description:

Global and national events over the past few years offered momentum for the movement to address long standing systemic inequities by expanding conversations of historical and present day barriers to opportunities and resources, shifting understanding about the lives of those who have been and are disproportionately affected, and increasing knowledge and access to engage in individual and collective healing.


This session centers a diversity-informed perspective of relationships and the implications for our healing work as infant and early childhood mental health professionals. From this relational lens, we consider the prenatal, infant, and early childhood neurophysiological developmental processes as adaptation to our social, cultural, economic, and political environments.


We’ll review and reflect on the ways in which relationships in the dominant U.S. culture influences our brain architecture and stress response systems and explore how these influences increase the likelihood that experiences of adversity and stress become traumatic. Our understanding of development as a function of relational adaptation provides insight to utilizing relationships to facilitate individual and collective healing for the children, families, and communities we support and for ourselves.


Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize Diversity-Informed Practice and related core concepts

  • Define healing and trauma from a interpersonal neurophysiological developmental perspective

  • Begin to apply a relational adaptation lens to our work to support healing for children, families, communities, and ourselves

  • Explore new and existing approaches to individual and collective healing that centers being in “right” relationship
