A primary interest of the field of infant mental health is in the early conditions that place infants at riskfor less than optimal development. The fundamental problem of what constitutes normal and abnormal development is now a focus of developmental psychology, infant psychiatry, and devel- opmental neuroscience. In the second part of this sequential work, I present interdisciplinary data to more deeply forge the theoretical links between severe attachment failures, impairments of the early… 
Dysregulation of the Right Brain: A Fundamental Mechanism of Traumatic Attachment and the Psychopathogenesis of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

TLDR
Disorganised-disoriented insecure attachment, a pattern common in infants abused in the first 2 years of life, is psychologically manifest as an inability to generate a coherent strategy for coping with relational stress, suggesting that early intervention programs can significantly alter the intergenerational transmission of posttraumatic stress disorders.
Relational Trauma and the Developing Right Brain

TLDR
It is suggested that self psychology is, in essence, a psychology of the unique functions of the right brain and that a rapprochement between psychoanalysis and neuroscience is now at hand.
Plenary Address, Australian Childhood Foundation Conference Childhood Trauma: Understanding the Basis of Change and Recovery Early Right Brain Regulation and the Relational Origins of Emotional Wellbeing
During the past two decades an explosion of interdisciplinary research, especially in developmental neuroscience, has transformed and deepened our understanding of how the seminal social emotional
Early interpersonal neurobiological assessment of attachment and autistic spectrum disorders
TLDR
Regulated and dysregulated bodily based communications can be assessed in order to determine the ongoing status of both the infant’s emotional and social development as well as the quality and efficiency of the infant–mother attachment relationship, and the model is applied to the assessment of early stages of autism.
Dissociation in children and adolescents as reaction to trauma – an overview of conceptual issues and neurobiological factors
  • T. Diseth
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Nordic journal of psychiatry
  • 2005
TLDR
The aim of this overview is to give an update on the concept of dissociation and the links to new neurobiological findings, hopefully to reduce unawareness, wrong diagnostics or even neglect of dissociative symptomatology by clinicians in child and adolescent psychiatry in the Nordic countries.
Early Life Exposure to Violence: Developmental Consequences on Brain and Behavior
TLDR
The known effects of witnessing violence during the perinatal period on socio-emotional development and the possible pathways by which IPV affects brain and stress-regulating systems are described and embedded in the context of the resource depletion hypothesis are described.
Neurobiology and neurodevelopmental impact of childhood traumatic stress and prenatal alcohol exposure.
TLDR
Children who had been exposed prenatally to alcohol along with postnatal traumatic experience had lower intelligence scores and more severe neurodevelopmental deficits in language, memory, visual processing, motor skills, and attention than did traumatized children without prenatal alcohol exposure.
Using Modern Attachment Theory to Guide Clinical Assessments of Early Attachment Relationships
In this chapter, we offer a review of recent research on mother–infant right brain-to-right brain visual, auditory, and tactile attachment communications and on current developmental neuroscientific

TLDR
Less than optimal affect-regulating experiences with the primary caregiver are imprinted into the circuits of this frontolimbic system that is instrumental to attachment functions, thereby producing orbitofrontal organizations that neurobiologically express different patterns of insecure attachments.

TLDR
An overview of the properties of self-organizing developmental systems is presented, a model of attachment dynamics as synchronized energy exchanges that cocreate nonlinear changes of state is proposed, and a role of bioamines and energy-generating brain mitochondria in state regulation is discussed.

TLDR
Overall, exposure to severe stress during the perinatal period could potentially induce alterations in the circuitry of the anterior cingulate cortex and hippocampal formation and interfere with the normal mechanisms underlying attention and learning.

Attachment and the regulation of the right brain
TLDR
Future directions of attachment research should focus upon the early-forming psychoneurobiological mechanisms that mediate both adaptive and maladaptive regulatory processes, which will have direct applications to the creation of more effective preventive and treatment methodologies.
