The Building Babies Brain course aims to support you to increase your knowledge of baby brain development, bonding and resilience and to be confident in ‘passing’ this information on to parents, carers and communities.
The community focused approach, led by Action for Children, aims to convey to parents, carers and families, key messages about baby brain development using trusted messengers. This fully funded (free) course supports anyone whose community role brings them into contact with children aged 0-2 years and their parent/carers. Learning together, Action for Children share understanding of baby brain development, bonding and resilience, building confidence in passing this information on to parents, carers and communities.
The workshop covers:
- Understanding the importance of baby brain development, especially during the vital 0-2 years. We share the most up to date, evidence-based information in an accessible way. This course is about sharing and learning together.
- Building confidence in passing this information on widely. Did you know that only a third of parents know this information? We want it to be ‘all our business’.
- Supporting resilience. How you can help parents by looking after yourself, encouraging parents to look after themselves, so that they can look after their children.
- Tools for being in relationships with others, including Dan Hughes PACE.
- Signposting you to evidence-based resources that you can easily pass onto parents.
- Risk and trauma in the early years, and how to build resilience for lifelong skills.
- Self-care for wellbeing – recognising if you are not alright then you are not as available for the child and carer.
The training is for toddler group leaders and volunteers, childminders, foster carers, peer supporters and anyone whose role brings them into contact with children aged 0-2 years and their carers and community members/volunteers who link in with families with children aged 0-2.
