Infant Mental Health and Early Intervention with Under-Threes and their Parents
The course offers a practical and theoretical introduction to the foundations of emotional, cognitive and personality development in babies and young children in the context of their primary relationships and experiences. The course explores professional responses to the wide range of struggles families may experience with problems such as: toileting, feeding, sleeping and behaviour.
The overall aim is to deepen the participants’ framework of understanding of conscious and unconscious factors involved in early developmental processes and to introduce new thinking about early preventative intervention.
