Relational Poverty: The Importance of Early Childhood Relationships for Child, Community and Culture


This new DVD is a 50 minute excerpt from a presentation by Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D. at a policy conference focused on the importance of early childhood. This is an excellent introduction to basic neurodevelopment and traumatology for clinicians, parents, caregivers and policy makers. Drawing on the work of the CTA and colleagues in many disciplines, this presentation helps put a broad context on the positive impact of high quality caregiving, supportive family and a stable community while illustrating the devastating impact of neglect, trauma, chaos and violence. This presentation emphasizes the negative consequences of recent changes in parenting, technology, community and culture on our developing children and suggests that recapturing healthy childrearing practices enriched in nurturing relationships may be the key to health.
