Keys to Caregiving is a research based learning program from the Barnard Centre University of Washington. The program provides important information on newborn and infant behaviour which builds competence and confidence in practitioners and their work with families. The course builds practitioner knowledge on infant cues, infant states, state modulation and the importance of the feeding interaction.
The training is research based and provides the following:
- It increases both provider and caregiver’s knowledge of the infant’s amazing abilities
- It builds confidence and competence in parent/caregiver’s care of their infants
- It assists providers in effectively sharing this knowledge with parents
In this interactive training program, participants will be observing short films of infants and their caregivers followed by workshop activities discussing how this knowledge can be practically applied to working with parents. All participants will be provided with a Keys to Caregiving Study Guide (included as part of program costs).
This day is facilitated by Ms Beverley Allen using DVDs, research based information and handouts from NCAST. Beverley has a background in Maternal & Child Health Nursing, Midwifery and Family Therapy and is a qualified educator with extensive knowledge working with families and their children 0-18 years.
