11/365: Outside World
Mural, Southwestern College, Santa Fe, NM, Jan. 2013
Finally, some photos of the outside world, thanks to a trip to Santa Fe for the first of four clinical seminars in infant mental health. This newish, multidisciplinary field weaves together family therapy, neuroscience, and even some anthropology to understand and explain how infants develop and learn, always in the context of their human relationships. Working with babies seems, to me, like a joy and a privilege, and helping families and communities address emotional and behavioral problems early on can have a huge impact down the road. And as much as I love the comforts of home, I did need a change of scenery, some novelty to reawaken the imagination.
