It Takes Attention: The Brain, Behavior and Self Perception

Insights for

Caring About Children

Deborah McNelis, MS.ed

slide11

We know more about how to support and develop healthy brains better than ever before.

  • A sense of belonging and a feeling of community is a basic need.
  • People are asking, “What can we do?”
  • Making a difference for others is natural and beneficial for everyone.
  • Prevention is best and is also extremely cost beneficial.
  • Because EVERY child deserves all of us caring about what they need most!
WHY?
slide12

So, how does a brain develop?

It isn’t as Complicated as it may seem!

slide15

90% of the brain

develops in the

pre-school years

  • 100 billion brain

cells at birth

“Oh really…? Most of my brain development happens after birth?”

parts of the brain

Brainstem - blood pressure, heart rate,

body temperature, survival

reactions

Midbrain- motor development, sleep

patterns

Limbic- attachment, emotional area,

memory

Cortex– thinking part of the brain

Parts of the Brain

Cortex

Limbic System

Midbrain

Brainstem

the prefrontal cortex

Executive Function

  • Prioritize Thoughts
  • Ability to Imagine
  • Think in the Abstract
  • Anticipate Consequences
  • Plan
  • Control Impulses
  • Regulation of Behaviors
The Prefrontal Cortex
undeveloped brains

Children are sometimes criticized for bad behavior that they simply can't help

Sometimes their emotional brains

are too immature for them to

behave better

  • Noncompliance?
  • Skill deficit?
  • Hijacked PFC?
Undeveloped Brains
slide26

“Wow repeating experiences really makes a difference to my brain!”

Repetition creates strong pathways

slide27

nurturing environment encourages emotional stability

  • impacts cognitive development
  • respond quickly & warmly; maintain consistent caregiver

Critical Window of Opportunity

EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENTBirth to 18 months

secure attachment

Research demonstrates that secure attachment can have an impact on the ability:

  • to form healthy relationships with others
  • to delay gratification
  • to problem solve
  • to have empathy for others
  • to put up with the frustration of failure and have more patience
  • to calm down from excitement
Secure Attachment
slide29

It may also lead to:

  • having a longer attention span
  • being able to better manage physical reactions to emotions
  • having an increased capacity for empathy
  • feeling less anxiety
  • having greater skills in communicating emotions in healthy ways
  • exhibiting fewer behavioral problems
  • having more confidence and a positive self-perception
  • being less fearful
  • having more willingness to explore and learn through challenges
