DESCRIPTION: Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up is a home-based 10-session intervention for high-risk parents and their infants or toddlers. The intervention is designed to enhance parental nurturance, parent-child synchrony and delight, and to decrease frightening behavior. This webinar will present the rationale for each of the intervention components followed by implementation strategies. Finally, evidence will be presented regarding the effectiveness of the intervention in enhancing child attachment, security, normalizing cortisol production, and improving executive functioning.
