Infant Mental Health: Babies Brains & Bonding

When 10 May at 9:30am to 5:30pm, 2019
Provided by CAMHS Training - Leeds Community Healthcare

“Infant Mental Health: Babies & Brains& and& Bonding” is designed to help practitioners working with infants, children, parents and families to understand how early relationships impact upon a baby’s brain development and the importance of sensitive parenting for optimal social and emotional development – in infancy and beyond. It is also appropriate for practitioners working with adults experiencing mental health difficulties to think about the adult’s experiences as an infant.

“Infant Mental Health: Babies,& Brains& ;and& Bonding” provides both a theoretical knowledge base, informed by neuro development and attachment theory, and a space for practitioners to consider how this applies to practice. Many practitioners may be experienced in attachment theory and/or recognising & baby& cues, however IMH: BBB extends this to explore the relationship between these and brain development.The training is a full day session that includes PowerPoint, interactive exercises, group activities and video excerpts delivered by two members of the Leeds Infant Mental Health Service. This is our fifth year of delivering this training and it has evaluated very positively.
