A New Video on the Science of Neglect

The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University has created another video in its excellent series on the impact of trauma and adversity on children.  This video focuses on the impact of neglect on child development.  Four types of neglect are described as well as strategies for ameliorating its effects.  Emphasis is placed on the importance of the "serve and return" response which can be provided by any caregiver.  A companion brief on the same topic is also available.
