Learning to Listen

Author(s): T. Berry Brazelton


From his childhood in Waco, Texas, where he took expert care of nine small cousins while the adults ate Sunday lunch, to Princeton and an offer from Broadway, to medical and psychoanalytic training, to the exquisite observations into newborn behavior that led babies to be seen in an entirely new light, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton's life has been one of innovation and caring. Known internationally for the Touchpoints theory of regression and growth in infants and young children, Brazelton is also credited for bringing the insights of child development into pediatrics, and for his powerful advocacy in Congress.
In "Learning to Listen," fans of Brazelton and professionals in his field can follow both the roots of a brilliant career and the evolution of child-rearing into the twenty-first century.

Product Information

"Kirkus Reviews", 4/1"The most fascinating parts of the memoir are most likely to be [Brazelton's] accounts of his experiences studying newborns in other cultures: Mayans in southern Mexico, Guatemalans, Kenyans, urban and rural Japanese, Chinese, Navajos in Arizona and Greeks on the island of Thera...Readers familiar with Brazelton's books and articles on babies and children may relish this close-up look at the man who guided them through the vicissitudes of parenthood."

T. Berry Brazelton, MD, is professor emeritus of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and adjunct professor of psychiatry, human behavior, and pediatrics at Brown University. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
