Dan and Jon's presentation focused on how the brain develops with comfort and joy: How DDP and PACE promote reversal learning, new neuropsychological relational patterns, affect regulation, and then reawaken the child's capacity to feel the need for both comfort and joy from his or her parents or other caregivers.
