CCFW Lecture: "Order and Disorder in the Developing Emotional Brain: Prospects for Cultivating Healthy Minds"
Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle

Join us for the latest lecture from the Center for Child and Family Well-Being presented by Richard Davidson, Order and Disorder in the Developing Emotional Brain: Prospects for Cultivating Healthy Minds.

Davidson will explore how individual differences in emotional reactivity and emotion regulation are pronounced as they account for substantial variation in the face of challenge. The neural substrates and biobehavioral correlates of such developmental individual differences will be described. This work will form the backdrop for a consideration of how these emotional styles might be shaped through training.

This lecture will underscore the need for a serious national research effort that is focused on cultivating social and emotional skills in children to foster the development of healthy minds.

Richard Davidson is a pioneer in neuroscience in the arena of emotion and neuroplasticity. He is the William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, director of the Waisman Laboratory for Affective Neuroscience and founder and chair of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds.
