Infant/Child Mental Health, Early Intervention, and Relationship-Based Therapies: A Neurorelational Framework for Interdisciplinary Practice (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)

A groundbreaking neuroscientific understanding of infant and child development, including a CD-ROM with supplementary worksheets, figures and tables.

When early interventions with children fail, clinicians wonder: How could things have been different? The answers seem obvious at first, but a little reflection begins to unveil just how complicated this question really is. Who should have been included in the treatment? With what professionals and using what approaches? When should intervention have occurred? Each question involves a spectrum of both personal and societal issues, which is perhaps why problems that are so widely acknowledged remain so widely ignored. Often, a family is not aware that their story could have had a different ending.

So, in response to the critical need for a more cohesive system of care for our youngest patients, this book presents a conceptual framework for interdisciplinary collaboration. Examining the issues of infant mental health and early intervention from a brain-based perspective—one that cuts across all domains—addresses the need for individual practitioners to incorporate the whole picture in relation to their part in assessing and intervening with each individual child and parent, and provides a global framework for team collaboration.

    Infant/Child Mental Health, Early Intervention, and Relationship-Based Therapies: A Neurorelational Framework for Interdisciplinary Practice was designed to to be used by a wide range of mental health and educational professionals. Using this overall framework it is possible to view a child’s maturation (or lack of such) from a number of different perspectives and can be used by all the concerned disciplines thereby avoiding the current problems of them not being able to view the child as a `whole being.’ My feeling is that this approach would revolutionize the way we deal with children who struggle in school. The framework would also be useful when working with adults, since the same work of seeing the `whole person’ exists for them as well.

    This book is well written, concise and uses helpful examples. The work they have done is thorough and appears to be very useful in understanding symptoms as well as treatment planning. There is good potential for this book to be used to coordinate work across many different disciplines and reduce confusion for professionals and families alike. I found reading this in a group highly rewarding and in immediately beneficial for my practice with both children and adults. Although this framework is targeted for children its focus on development is useful in understanding the issues adults are facing as well. The authors have also been generous in sharing a CD at the end with many assessment forms they use in their work!

    In reading Lillas and Turnbull’s latest book, I was happy to find research-based justification and advocacy for interdisciplinary effort based on how the brain functions. It is clear to me that no one professional can address the needs of the whole child; a child is too complex. As Lillas and Turnbull explain, this complexity stems from the very nature of our brain and its evolutionary responses to the external world. The dissemination of the neurorelational framework holds a tremendous capacity to create supportive communities, working together to effectively expand the opportunities for children born with disabilities who would have been classified as `hopeless’ just a generation ago. It’s wonderful to see scientific progress in application!
