DAY ONE - Masterclass 1

40 Category 1 Points RACGP (ALM)

Focussed Clinical Breastfeeding Support

This activity aims to ensure you acquire a set of focussed clinical skills for identifying and effectively assisting with a wide range of breastfeeding problems in time-constrained environments. We analyse the latest research concerning suck, swallow, and breath coordination in breastfeeding, and discover why our current approaches are often not helping. We teach you the innovative gestalt approach to fit and hold (‘latch and positioning’) problems, which is based upon ultrasound studies of breastfeeding babies’ suck and swallow, and explore in detail how this differs to other approaches to fit and hold. We also explore the implications of the gestalt model for a wide range of clinical breastfeeding support scenarios, including nipple and breast pain. The day includes demonstrations with volunteer families and rich opportunities for you to practice.

Mental Health Stream 

During some of the detailed clinical breastfeeding education, mental health experts will be given the opportuntiy to expand on the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) strategies introduced within the Certification training. Clinical skills using ACT will be developed within the context of perinatal and infant mental health. A separate training space will be used to enable interactive activities.
