Our vision is to understand the emotional development of the
infant from the beginning, to facilitate communication in the
infant-caregiver relationship, and to provide an environment for
infants to thrive.
We study the infants’ capacities for emotional communication and
social relatedness as well as the corresponding abilities of the
caregiver. Our therapeutic interventions clarify infant
communication and facilitate caregiver empathy and response.
