Program for Providers and Educators Live Online Modules November 2021
Modules in Neuroprotective Developmental Care
Who can come: Providers and Educators
We are now offering an educational opportunity for providers and educators who work with parents with babies.
In recent years, we've been approached regularly by people from a range of disciplines around the world who work with parents and babies - doulas, bodywork therapists, breastfeeding counsellors, childcare workers, complementary therapists, IBCLCs who don't have a health professional background, and others - who are keen to learn how to use our work within their own practice. We acknowledge the importance of the work that is done by a wide range of providers and educators whose qualification and scope of practice doesn't fall in the category of registered health professional. (If you are a health professional who is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, or the equivalent within your own country, we invite you to click here for more information about NDC Accreditation.)
Now, as promised, we are offering our first interdisciplinary NDC Program for Providers and Educators, which offers innovative evidence-based strategies to use as you work with new families facing breastfeeding, sleep and unsettled infant behaviour challenges, and as you promote parent well-being in the perinatal period.
By joining our live online NDC Program for Providers and Educators, you can learn about:
Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC or The Possums Programs)
The gestalt biomechanical model of infant suck and swallow during breastfeeding, and how that translates into supporting breastfeeding women
The Possums Baby and Toddler Sleep Program
The five domain approach to cry-fuss problems, and how to use the NDC visual tool
Powerful Acceptance and Commitment Therapy strategies for the support of emotional well-being in the perinatal period.
There are three steps in this education program.
Completion of online Introductory Workshop 1 "Evidence-based care of mothers and babies"
Completion of online Introductory Workshop 2 "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health"
Completion of live online NDC Modules. Our first live online NDC Modules will be held in 3 hour blocks over 3 weeks, commencing Thursday 15 July 2021
