A short course on this topic will be offered by Judy Davies. The course is aimed at clinicians who have an interest in this field and want to develop their skills in working with parents, their babies and young children. It may be of particular interest to clinicians who have completed an infant observation seminar


The course will be based on the Tavistock Clinic model of a short intervention [1-7 sessions] involving both parents and child. This kind of intervention has been found to be helpful in cases in which crying, sleeping and feeding difficulties, or lack of attunement is the presenting problem.


The course will be a mixture of clinical case discussions and readings. It will run for 10 weeks and be limited to 8 participants. Readings will be provided.
