This session will offer an overview of an “interpersonal neurobiology” of the developing mind and how it emerges from the transaction of neurophysiological and interpersonal processes. This perspective enables a wide range of practitioners the opportunity to draw on a synthesis of over a dozen different independent sciences into a convergent view of development that integrates fields from anthropology to cognitive neuroscience. Utilized by educators, clinicians, parents, policy makers and others, this view will provide the scaffold from which connections to the Enneagram approach may be made.
