Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Talk by Genevieve Vaughan at the 2016 conference of the Mothering Institute for Research and Community Involvement in Toronto. Vaughan states that the act of mothering is unilateral gift-giving, and that an infant's experience of being mothered (whether by biological mother or other) builds both the physical brain and the template of what it is to be human.  Genevieve Vaughan, Dr. Allan Schore - see notes.
