The need to make sense of children’s emotional, learning, and behavioural problems is critical given increasing rates of mental health issues, acts of aggression, and violence as well as escalating medication usage (legal and illegal). We cannot solve a problem we do not understand and an interdisciplinary lens is imperative in piecing together the puzzle. Taking an integrated perspective based on the latest research from the fields of developmental psychology, neuroscience, and attachment science will allow us to better address the roots of childhood “stuckness” instead of battling symptoms.
