Pregnancy to Preschool
Formulating our responses to emotional disconnection and neglect - the need for effective intervention early on
This programme provides an effective framework for anyone working with parents, infants and toddlers from pregnancy through to nursery. It is particularly aimed at addressing gaps in provision for families with increased vulnerability due to factors such as parental mental illness, deprivation and trauma. The programme forms part of NSCAP’s CPD portfolio and is underpinned by a programme of impact evaluation which has already indicated the transformative potential which this type of experience-based learning can have on practice at work.
The 12 week course is delivered in two five week blocks plus two group consultations in week 6 & 12. The aim of the consultations is to help embed the learning into practice.
The course aims to help participants identify and address difficulties in the parent-infant relationship particularly where presentations of emotional difficulties or neglect are present, and to support participants’ capacity to use their professional skills in this challenging area.
We are not currently recruiting for this programme but are gathering expressions of interest with regards to a future course. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.
