Title of Presentation: "The Conscious Baby Emerges: Embracing a New Story for Human Development"

Brief Description of Presentation: For decades, APPPAH has been the champion of the consciousness of babies and a New Story for human development. With the discoveries afforded by attachment research, neuroscience, epigenetics and trauma healing, main stream health practices are starting to support our mission: the baby's experience of conception through the first year of life forms a template for life. This presentation will illuminate The Conscious Baby as part of the New Story of Human Health, one that is holistic and inclusive. Come celebrate APPPAH's mission with a Saturday evening interactive keynote address that contrasts this New Story with the old story through history, current events, and exercises that will take you on a journey of exploration and reflection.
