[A New Approach to Fostering Socio-Emotional Communication and Development in the Earliest Years of Life].
Fenichel, Emily, Ed.
Zero to Three, v17 n1 Aug-Sep 1996
The five articles in this newsletter theme issue focus on the development of socioemotional and communication skills in infants and toddlers through the Partners in Parenting Education (PIPE) program. The first article, "The Partners in Parenting Education Program: A New Option in Parent Education" (Perry M. Butterfield), describes the program's approach, curriculum, evaluation, dissemination, and limitations. The second article, "Thinking about Intervention and Improving Socio-Emotional Development: A Clinical Perspective and Recent Trends in Policy and Knowledge" (Robert N. Emde), discusses prevention, the Early Head Start program (for children 0-3) and early socioemotional development as a foundation for learning and morality, and the role of PIPE. Next, in "Developing a Sense of Self and Others," Sandra Pipp-Siegel and Leah Pressman discuss procedural and declarative knowledge, the emerging sense of self and normal self-development, and the PIPE curriculum for infants from 2 months to 21 months of age. Next, Lorraine F. Kubicek, in "Helping Young Children Become Competent Communicators: The Role of Relationships," reviews early emotion-based exchanges, stresses the importance of caregiver input in the language-learning environment, and shows how PIPE encourages language development. The last paper, "Supporting Emotion Regulation and Emotional Availability through Home Visitation" (JoAnn L. Robinson and Laura Glaves), explores the mutual regulatory process, how home visitors can support emotion regulation, and the integration of PIPE and the Home Visitation 2000 program.
