The Mother-Infant Interaction Series Set of 7 psychology videos. This classic seven-part series on infant development is back in distribution after being out of print for a number of years. The series illustrates in striking detail the influence that a mother can have on the emotional and cognitive development of her infant.

The series grew out of the pioneering research work of the producers, Doctors Sylvia Brody and Sidney Axelrad, at the City University of New York's Child Development Research Project. (Brody - Axelrad Psychology) American Psychiatric Assoc. honoree, American Academy of Child Psychiatry honoree, Assoc. for Child Analysis honoree, American Psychoanalytic Assoc. honoree. Forms of Feeding at Six Weeks Shows variations in mothers' ways of touching, holding, looking at, and talking to their babies during feeding, and the immediate effects of differences in handling on the infant's state. The narration places these effects in long-term perspective by making reference to the later developmental status and behavior of the infants. 1968 Forms of Feeding at Six Months Examines the relationship between a baby's feeding experiences at six months and its development of tension tolerance. Illustrates how an infant is helped to wait for food or its mother's help, how a mother notes its wish to take initiative and responds to it, and how the baby can be satisfied or frustrated by its feeding. 1969 Feeding and Object Relations at One Year Studies the connections between an infant's experiences with its mother and its relationships to people and things at the age of one year. Shows the importance of the quality of independence that mothers allow their infants and illustrates that the child's degree of independence is intimately tied to the gratification that it has learned to derive from animate and inanimate objects. 1970 Feeding and Function Pleasure in the First Year of Life Function pleasure is defined as the pleasurable discharge of energy in the exercise of an activity, such as an infant's joy in spontaneous body movement or the handling of objects. This program examines relationships between types of maternal behavior and infants' maturity of function pleasure. 1970 Maternal Behavior and the Infant's Object Cathexis in the First Year of Life Illustrates the relationships between the way an infant is mothered - especially the way it is fed - and the quality, quantity, and stability of its relatedness to the outer world of objects at the age of one year.1970 Resemblances in Expressive Behavior Shows a variety of mother-infant interactions that illustrate how the expressive behavior of infants is derived to an important extent, even at one year of age, from the maternal behavior to which they have become accustomed. 1971 Aspects of Ego Development -- Competence This program develops the theme of the importance of mother-infant interactions to other aspects of the child's development and to older ages. It illustrates how differences in infant feeding patterns are related to the development of competencies in such areas as the child's handling of construction materials and ability to visualize solutions to problems. 1984 (Brody - Axelrad Psychology)

Five mothers, breast-feeding their children, are successively shown. The behavior of the mothers in feeding and play situations is shown to be an expression of their conscious or unconscious wishes of what their children should be like. Five children are shown. Each is followed by a catamnesis of the further development of the child, showing how much the child's personality is a product of the mother's wishes and how much it molds itself to the picture she has of him.

Complex PTSD in Children I: Etiology, Assessment, Advocacy, II: Therapeutic Intervention

While this country spends large amounts on abused and neglected children----some thirty to forty billion dollars a year, according to Bessel van der Kolk----relatively little of this money is devoted to helping children recover from the psychological damage they have suffered. As a result, many survivors continue to suffer from the effects of their trauma---depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.---in their adult lives. In this video series, Bessel van der Kolk and other clinicians from The Trauma Center, along with therapists Joyanna Silberg and Frances Waters, describe the assessment tools and therapeutic approaches that they have found most useful in working the severely traumatized in children. The clinician's role in such cases often includes working with parents or guardians as well as children, and can extend far beyond the therapy room to encompass psychoeducation and advocacy. I: Etiology, Assessment, Advocacy Before they can be treated, abused children need to be identified. The presenters describe the range of symptoms with which a traumatized child may present, and explain the ways in which a trauma assessment differs from a general mental health assessment Topic include developmentally appropriate behavior, differential diagnoses, parental trauma history, and the importance of early intervention. 41 minutes II: Therapeutic Intervention For children with complex PTSD, safety must be established both externally and internally. Maintaining internal safety can be an especially difficult task when the child is highly dissociative. The presenters discuss ground techniques that can help a child to stay safe and stable, and describe the therapeutic modalities—play, talk, art, and group therapy—that they have found useful. Topics include controlling aggression, accessing emotions, changing the trauma story, and using EMDR. 43 minutes

The ACE Study Parts 1 & 2

Part I This video, intended for general audiences and policymakers, discusses the origins and findings of the largest-scale study to date of the incidence and effects of childhood trauma, known as the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study. According to data collected from the over 17,000 Kaiser patients in this ongoing retrospective and prospective study, adverse childhood experiences, though well concealed, are unexpectedly common, have a profound negative effect on adult health and well-being a half century later, and are a prime determinant of adult health status in the United States. Part II This video describes the ACE Study's implications for the healthcare professions: that all patients should be routinely screened for adverse childhood experiences; that a childhood trauma history may be very relevant to both serious illness and vague somatic complaints; and that appropriate approaches to treatment must include dealing with childhood trauma. Additional data suggest that evaluating patients for ACEs is also cost-effective.

Grasping

A Rene Spitz study featuring the development of the grasping pattern. Grasping develops as a sequence in which motor skills interact progressively with the ever-widening radius of the unfolding of the psyche. Grasping proper is an intentional act. Its earliest predecessor in the development is the clutching reflex, a purely motor pattern present at birth and shown in the first pictures. A learning process adapts this motor pattern to purposeful use. Between grasping proper and clutching reflex, there is also a motor difference shown in the film; the clutching reflex takes place with unopposed thumb. Mastery of grasping is achieved when the infant uses the neuromuscular pattern adequately to exploit environmental facilities to gratify its needs. The grasping development encompasses all of the first year. Silent © 1953 (Rene Spitz, M.D., Psychology) From the Psycholoanalytic Research Project on Problems in Infancy film studies.

Psychogenic Disease in Infancy: An Attempt at their Classification

In Psychogenic Disease in Infancy, Rene Spitz lays the groundwork for understanding the mother-child bonding relationship. In infants during the first year of life a series of clinical pictures can be distinguished, in the etiology of which psychological factors appear to be involved. This film illustrates a series of psychogenic diseases and attempts to relate the clinical picture with one of the etiological factors; namely the infants' relationship with their mothers. The clinical pictures accordingly are divided into two categories: those diseases in which the wrong kind of mother-child relation act, as it were, as a psychic toxin, called psychotoxic disease; those diseases in which the lack of sufficient mother-child relations result in a deficiency of emotional supplies for the infant, called emotional deficiency diseases. the conclusion is drawn that the etiological factors underlying this classification are the quality of the mother-child relation in the emotional deficiency diseases.

Cancer Psychology: An Interview with Dr. Lawrence LeShan

Dr. Lawrence LeShan is the pioneer of psychological intervention for cancer. As a psychologist, Dr. LeShan first began working with terminal cancer patients using classic Freudian techniques and learned that the traditional psychotherapeutic approach (searching for pathology and its' roots) was ineffective. His own research revealed that a majority of his clients had lost their enthusiasm for life, prior to contracting cancer. Aware of it, or not, they no longer believed they would be able to achieve the kind of satisfying life they desired. LeShan developed a new approach. It entails helping a person search for what would be a zestful and enthusiastic life; as he calls it, to "find their song." With this form of therapy, a majority of his terminal clients went into remission or their cancer resolved. Remarkable, but not unscientific according to LeShan. To him, and those that practice this form of therapy, it is mostly a matter of relieving stress on the immune system, and allowing the immune system to improve its' ability to heal. LeShan emphatically states that it is not a matter of people creating their own reality. He says he has known people who have not wanted to live very much, but no one who wanted to die. He is critical of therapists who leave their clients feeling guilty and feeling that they were in some way responsible for their cancer. Skilled professionals, he maintains, do not have this as a problem. In this interview, LeShan gives a comprehensive review of this therapy, it's origins, mechanics and practical application. Lawrence LeShan is clearly one of the grand masters of psychology. He has developed a sensible, satisfying, and effective complementary cancer therapy that is a must for those wishing to help those with cancer survive. Interview Questions: q When was the relationship between cancer and psychology first considered? q How do psychological factors effect the development of cancer? q Is traditional psychotherapy effective? q What is this new approach based on and what are the results? q Does this new therapy provide a different experience for the patient? q What areas should therapists encourage cancer patients to explore? q How do you assist a client in "finding their song" if they believe fulfillment is impossible? q Can psychological factors cause cancer? q What do you advise people who are looking for a "cancer therapist?" Please be aware that these questions do not encompass the entire scope of the answers that Dr. LeShan provided. Dr. LeShan's responses were lengthy and far reaching and included much more information than one might be led to believe by the questions alone. He presents a coherent, logical and practical presentation of a remarkable therapeutic approach that every person with cancer can benefit. ©2002 New Way Productions

Experimentally Produced Neurotic in the Rat

Won 1938 prize of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Originally produced as research evidence. Using the Lashley jumping technique the rat is trained to respond to a pattern dicrimination in the customary 2-wondow stimulus situation. Some of the animals, if frustrated in this situation, change to a position response and always react to the right or left window. After the animals have established definite discrimination reactions, they are faced with only one window in which is placed the negative card used in the training series. A small stream of air directed behind the animal forces them to the negative card. One animal develops "abortive behavior", jumping but always turning head and shooulders causing him to strike the shield near the stimulus card. Another rat develops stubborn resistance, hunching with eyes closed and teeth chattering, refusing to eat on the experimental apparatus. Behaviour eventually turns from apathetic to neurotic outburst. He suddenly leaps in the air in no predictable direction, falls on the floor, jumps vertically, hops with stilted jerky movements across the room, rolls on one side with clawing movements and tail twitching, and finally becomes quieter, but continues to show tics and tonic rigor. In the last stages before recovery the animal develops a complete body passivity in the hands of experimenter Copyright 1939 Experimentally Produced Neurotic Behavior in Rats Produced by Adelbert Ford

An Analysis of the Forms of Animal Learning - Parts 1-4

C 1940 The University of Rochester Demonstrates in four parts, the four forms of learning. Conditioned response learning forms are represented in three examples: 1) leg flexion initiated with electric shock and conditioned to sound;2) the running response in an exercise cage initiated by shock and conditioned to sound; 3) general activity in a suspended cage initiated by shock and conditioned to sound, with the medthod of kymographoc recording indicated. The second learning form, problem solving, is exhibited in two examples: 1) a cat learns to pull a string in order to drag a dish into position for eating. Several unattached strings are also presented to cat. In second scenaroi, cat never learns to distinguish between attached and unattached string, an example of "positional learning". 2) the cat learns to push a a ball into a hopper in order to open a door exposing food. The third learning form, discriminative learning, is shown in film 3, as three examples: 1) the cat learns to select the door on which as triangle has been painted and 2) the cat learns to select the brighter of two doors before pressing a pedal which releases the obstruction to the food reward. 3) the cat learns to choose a door behind which a sounding device has been placed. The fourth learning example , compound learning, is illustrated in two sessions 1) the cat learns to press two pedals alternately in order to open the food troughs. 2) The cat learns to pull a string releasing a ball which is pushed into a hopper exposing food.

In this video, therapist David Calof uses a model therapy session to demonstrate a "rage dump" process, which allows safe and complete expression of the rageful affects surrounding early trauma and loss.

Some alters in DID systems may identify with the perpetrators of their abuse, becoming hostile or self-injuring.

The Tree of Life

Available in Spanish or English Los Voladores" (the Flyers) is a 1500 year-old rite sacred to Quetzalcoatl, the Morning Star. From its origins on the Gulf coast of Mexico, the ritual spread throughout Mesoamerica: a special square was reserved for it in Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital, and a variant is still known among the Quiche' Maya in Guatemala. Today "Los Voladores" is best known in its original home in the Huasteca region, especially among the Totonac, who have lived in the area for millenia. The version shown in the film is from Huehuetla, in the Sierra Norte de Puebla. The film opens with images from the Nuttall, Laud, and other Codices, and poetry from "Cantares Mexicanos", a collection of pre-hispanic Nahuatl verse from Texcoco.  At the home of one of the Voladores, we watch the preparation of the characteristic seven-branched wax candles, crowned with a representation of the Volador pole (a mayordomia obligation, part of the cargo system). Intercut with the candle-making, children learn the ritual of the Voladores by re-enacting it from start to finish.   In the forest, the Voladores bless the tree chosen for the rite. The tree is felled and dragged by 300 Totonacs along mule trails into the village, where it is wrapped with vines and raised entirely by hand to its new place in the churchyard. Preparations are completed as the Voladores bring the hub, the sacred symbol of dynamic change (Olin), from its place at their home altar, set it on the tip of the pole, and thread the ropes which will bear them on their flight carefully through the hub and around the pole. Dressed in costumes drawn from 18th-century European models, the Voladores join the statue of San Salvador, the Risen Savior, in the fiesta procession. As the capitan of the Voladores dances on the narrow bub, high above the flagstones, other dance groups perform: Huehues, Quetzales, San Migueles, and Negritos. Then the Voladores descend head down, arms spread, in a slow spiral, to the sound of drum and flute... Combining ritual, dance, music, poetry, and art, "THE TREE OF LIFE" is a meditation on the mystery at the heart of human life. It calls us to keep the world in balance with our lives.

Complex PTSD in Children II: Therapeutic Intervention

While this country spends large amounts on abused and neglected children----some thirty to forty billion dollars a year, according to Bessel van der Kolk----relatively little of this money is devoted to helping children recover from the psychological damage they have suffered. As a result, many survivors continue to suffer from the effects of their trauma---depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.---in their adult lives. In this video series, Bessel van der Kolk and other clinicians from The Trauma Center, along with therapists Joyanna Silberg and Frances Waters, describe the assessment tools and therapeutic approaches that they have found most useful in working the severely traumatized in children. The clinician's role in such cases often includes working with parents or guardians as well as children, and can extend far beyond the therapy room to encompass psychoeducation and advocacy. For children with complex PTSD, safety must be established both externally and internally. Maintaining internal safety can be an especially difficult task when the child is highly dissociative. The presenters discuss ground techniques that can help a child to stay safe and stable, and describe the therapeutic modalities—play, talk, art, and group therapy—that they have found useful. Topics include controlling aggression, accessing emotions, changing the trauma story, and using EMDR.
