Which elements are starving for resources, which are rigid and hampering progress?

“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.

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.

Description Choosing the language of solutions.

In this workshop, we will review a model of Non-Violent Communication (NVC) which is used to help us state our needs in a non-judgemental and non-threatening way. By doing so, we can avoid many conflicts by simply focussing on the facts of how things are and collaborating on a solution forwards, rather than getting caught up in the language of blame or hurt.

Over the course of this workshop, you will get the opportunity to work with others to practice changing your language and reflecting on real-life examples where a different way of communicating could have led to a more harmonious result.

Take away a tried and tested model for reducing conflict at work and at home.
