Dr. Purvis and the TCU Institute of Child Development are developing a new set of DVDs — the Healing Family Series. This series is a follow-on resource to the Institute’s existing Lecture Series DVDs, featuring lectures by Dr. Purvis on a wide range of topics.
When complete the Healing Families Series will include nine professionally produced educational DVDs enabling professionals, families and caregivers to develop skills in dealing with children from hard places. This DVD series will address basic elements of the Institute’s work and include topics such as Sensory Integration, Facilitating Behavioral Change, Parent-Child Attachment and Nutritional Neuroscience.
Video footage from various Institute programs is blended with lecture materials to provide clear demonstration of the skills and information discussed. The DVDs are an important way of disseminating the Institute’s findings, and will greatly enhance its capacity to reach parents of developmentally impaired children and the professionals that support them.
Healthy Touch and Playful Interaction are the first two DVDs from the Healing Family Series, and are already available for purchase. Additional DVDs in this series will be available over the coming months.
