About this Conference

Profectum and DIR® have a long history of celebrating the individual differences we all bring into the world. Our fall conference continued that mission by reflecting on socio-cultural identity as fundamental to the definition of individual difference. History, culture and socio-cultural identity are inseparable from a child’s relationship to self, others and the larger world. Regulation, engagement, reciprocity, sense of self, and symbols all develop somatically within context. It is crucial for DIR® practitioners to examine how systems, policies and dominant culture practices built on white supremacy and dominant culture paradigms continue to impede development for many children and families. Join us for a day of listening, learning, and reflecting on these important parts of DIR® practice.
