About the event:

The one-day training delivered by highly specialist staff is designed to provide up-to-date information on infant neurodevelopment, attachment theory and promoting responsiveness and sensitivity in parents. It aims to support practitioners in their work with families, giving babies the best possible start in life.

The format of the training provides both a theoretical knowledge base and space for managers and practitioners to apply this in practice.  This can lead to increased confidence in work around the parent-infant relationship, creating small changes within practice. These small changes can make a big difference. The 1001 critical days highlights the importance of acting early to enhance the outcomes for babies, so that support with first relationships can prevent later problems in life.

Post training support:  The one-day training is followed by a half day top up session within six months alongside ongoing regular support using multi agency case consultation, reflective practice, support and advice.
