Learning to Listen Webinar Series
T. Berry Brazelton, MD (1918 – 2018) foresaw the many new challenges facing families today, including the interference of social media and digital technology with family relationships and child development, and their polarizing effects on public debate. Brazelton was a master of the kind of observation and listening so desperately needed today, and helped generations of parents and professionals around the world to learn to listen to babies, children and to each other.

Join us for the Learning to Listen webinar series, as we celebrate Dr. Brazelton's enduring legacy by learning from other masterful communicators about what children and parents have taught them through the power of listening.
