Dear colleagues,

In this and the subsequent flyers we introduce one of the five plenary speakers of our 15th WAIMH Congress.

 

One of the plenaries will be given by Dr. Marian J. Bakermans-Kranenburg with the title The impact of abuse and neglect and possibilities for intervention.

 

Marian J. Bakermans-Kranenburg studies attachment and emotion regulation in parents and their children, with special emphasis on neurobiological processes in parenting and development. As part of the Leiden team studying emotion regulation and attachment over the life span, her academic interest in the interplay between nature and nurture has led to a series of studies testing the ‘differential susceptibility’ model, suggesting that some children, due to their temperament or genetics, are more susceptible to both negative and positive environmental influences.

 

Intervention studies, changing the environment for the better, have their natural place in this line of research. The Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting has been developed in Leiden and has shown effectiveness in a variety of groups and settings. A related topic is the role of oxytocin in parenting, and she has done several studies on the effect of ‘a sniff of oxytocin’ on the perception of infant crying and laughter. Using meta-analysis Marinus van IJzendoorn and she try to get (and provide) overviews of research fields related to their own work. She received the Bowlby-Ainsworth Award in 2005, and she has been Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and Member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences since 2012.

 

 

 

The submission site at  www.waimh2016.org is open and we are looking forward to your submissions. Remember that this time we have created a special abstract format also for clinical presentations, and submissions on both research and clinical work are welcomed!

 

Our International Review Panellists and the whole of the Scientific Programme Committee are looking forward to reading your submissions, which according to our previous experiences will once again be rich and innovative.

 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you in Prague!

MYTHS AND LEGENDS OF MAGICAL PRAGUE

 

Streets paved with cobblestones, long shadows stretching from glowing lanterns, the wind playing with the coloured leaves and the dark outlines of the Gothic cathedrals. This is magical Prague, a city shrouded in countless myths and legends from its thousand years of history. Set out on the trail of its mythical inhabitants and creatures to unusual places which go to make up the unique character of this city on the banks of the Vltava.
