This ten-week course aims to introduce a framework of thinking about parent and infant relationships, enhancing the skills of front-line professionals working to promote infant mental health and development. It is a practical and theoretical introduction to some essential themes concerning the foundations of emotional, cognitive and personality development in babies and young children in the context of their primary relationships and experiences.
Explore professional responses to the wide range of families struggling with problems such as toileting, feeding, sleeping, and behavioural difficulties. Explore pioneering studies and clinical approaches, taking part in in-depth discussions about your own casework and experiences from practice. Deepen your understanding of conscious and unconscious factors involved in early developmental processes and learn more about early preventative intervention.
This course will be taught face-to-face across our Sunderland campuses, consisting of ten sessions lasting three hours each. You will be expected to attend most, or all of the sessions.
Upon completion of the course, including the final assessment task, you will achieve a 30-credit module at level 7 from the University of Sunderland.
In addition to this, on completion of the course you will receive certification from the Association of Infant Mental Health UK and 35 CPD points (on the AiMH CPD framework).

This is a post graduate level 7 module therefore participants will typically be graduates in a child related field. However, non-graduate professionals/practitioners with considerable and relevant experience in working with young children and their parents will also be considered.
