This training follows the introductory day of training offered in 2017, and in June this year. It will focus on the ‘how’ of doing infant led practice allowing plenty of time for discussion and integration of practice. A case presentation from an audience member will be invited as well as an opportunity to explore a case through reflective supervision. Video material of an infant led interview will also be offered for exploration. This is an advanced training opportunity not to be missed!

“I hope this will be a resource that you may find useful for your work. I also hope that you might feel confident to pass this information onto others who work with not only infants and children directly but work with any family impacted by family violence. It draws directly from my practice as an infant and child mental health practitioner for over twenty years, as a family therapist for over twenty-five years and from my current work as both a therapist, and as a consultant to multiple practitioners working in the early years.”
