Helping babies from the bench is the title of a DVD produced by the Zero to Three group that explains how to use the science of early childhood development in court.
“The children who come to us have so little, and we need to give them so much, so that they can make up for those who brought them into the system. The more I learn about the brain, the more I realize how crucial this work is and how important this period of time in the baby’s life is.” The Honorable Cindy Lederman, Miami-Dade County Juvenile Court.
This is a DVD that is 15 or so minutes long that I show as part of the Inward Journey to show some of the dynamics they may have been exposed to as well as their consequences as what their children may be experiencing or had experienced. Experience tells me that the stage has to be carefully set as it can and has triggered some strong emotions. However, none have said they would not have seen it even knowing the feelings and emotions it is apt to trigger.
