Dr Suzanne Zeedyk – The Science of Connection: Why We Humans are Wired for Meaning-Making


How and why are we all innately interconnected?

Join developmental psychologist Dr Suzanne Zeedyk to re-attune to the experiences of your baby-self and how these relate to our innate empathic connection with each other.

Science tells us that human beings are born already connected to other people.  We arrive with brains and bodies attuned to other people’s facial expressions, vocalisations and movements.  Our baby brains keep track of patterns within those exchanges, and they automatically make meaning of those patterns.  This single insight about basic human neurology can go a long way toward explaining things that, as adults, confuse us about other people’s behaviour. 

The stories that our baby-self concluded about how relationships work can differ wildly from the conclusions that other babies came to.   The thing is, most of the time we aren’t even aware of the stories we are telling ourselves, because they have been stored in the unconscious, veiled years of our infancy.  This talk with developmental psychologist Dr Suzanne Zeedyk will explore how innate connection works and why grown-ups benefit from being curious about the experiences of their baby-selves.

About the speaker:

 

Dr Suzanne Zeedyk is the founder of the organisation  Connected Baby.  By training as a developmental psychologist and research scientist, she has spent the last decade working to help the public better understand the science of connection.  Suzanne works with a wide range of partners throughout Scotland and beyond to help devise ways that we can put relationships at the centre of policy, practice and communities.  In the course of that effort, she has become one of the leading voices in tackling the causes and consequences of childhood trauma, as this July 2020 interview with Kindred Media.
