23rd Annual RIE™ Infant Toddler Conference for Parents and Professionals
Workshop Presentation by Liz Memel"Developing Perspective: The Give and the Get of Infant-Adult Relationships"
10:45 to 12:15
The workshop offers knowledge about gaining awareness and regard for another’s point of view, a major key to building relationships between humans. Connection comes from the art of perspective-taking and its partner, perspective-giving. When approaching infants with sensitivity and respect, the adult has the opportunity to teach about mutuality and support each other gaining skills of perspective, that formative regard for each other's point of view that shapes human development.
