Clinical Perspectives on Reflective Parenting: Keeping the Child’s Mind in Mind describes the Center for Reflective Parenting and techniques developed at the Center for helping parents to be able to understand and reflect on their children’s emotional states, as a way of helping them to be more effective parents. Discussion of neurobiological correlates of “reflective parenting,” and of similar techniques used at the Pacella Child Center and in other settings, places the clinical technique in the context of other work directed at helping parents help their children to grow up emotionally healthy.
