Infant mental health in practice

Establishing a secure parent-child attachment relationship during the first three years of a child’s life is fundamental for lifelong emotional wellbeing and essential for enjoying satisfying relationships throughout the lifespan. This one-day workshop will delve into:

  • The development of the baby’s first attachment relationship to his most important caregiver

  • The impact of early caregiving on the baby’s developing brain

  • Infant and toddler distress and how parents respond to them

  • Why parental reflective capacity is so important for secure attachment

  • How you can incorporate the tenets of attachment theory into your clinical practice.

  • Ways to develop parents’ capacity to understand and care for their baby that promote secure infant attachment.

Target audience: Recommended for all child and family health professionals.

The course delivery provides a mixture of evidence-based information, group-work, videos and interactive work.

  • Do you want to help infants develop secure relationships with their caregivers?

  • Do you want to help caregivers share a sensitive, affectionate and empathic relationship with their babies?

Then this is the workshop for you.
