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… Expand
Dysregulation of the Right Brain: A Fundamental Mechanism of Traumatic Attachment and the Psychopathogenesis of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
  • A. Schore
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Australian and New Zealand journal of psychiatry
  • 2002
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. Expand
Parent-Infant Communication and the Neurobiology of Emotional Development.
The interactive creation of an attachment bond of affective communication between the psychobiologically attuned primary caregiver and the infant is central to human emotional development. TheseExpand
Relational Trauma and the Developing Right Brain
  • A. Schore
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 2009
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. Expand

Early interpersonal neurobiological assessment of attachment and autistic spectrum disorders
  • A. Schore
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Front. Psychol.
  • 2014
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. Expand
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. Expand
