Event Details

Register by 5 March here.

In very early life, babies and their families are set on interpersonal and developmental trajectories with life-long health implications. Yet the gap between evidence and clinical practice is bigger here than at any other time of life. Parents receive a lot of conflicting advice, which may worsen breastfeeding, sleep, cry-fuss and maternal mood problems. Babies commonly receive inappropriate medical diagnoses, risking unintended outcomes.

Day 1: Learn to apply the clinical tools of community-based NDC (‘The Possums Programs’) across the domains of breastfeeding, sleep and cry-fuss problems.
Day 2:Learn simple psychological strategies from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, applicable in the primary care setting for the support of perinatal and infant mental health.
NDC is peer-reviewed and published in national and international journals, and is changing practice internationally. Join the 1000 health professionals Australia-wide who have completed our education days!

Presenters include Dr Pamela Douglas (GP, IBCLC), Ms Renee Keogh (RN, IBCLC), and Ms Amanda Donnet (Clinical Registrar, Psychologist).
