This short professional development course aims to develop your skills and knowledge so that you can support parents to notice and respond to their baby’s cues to enhance their nurturing relationship by providing a structured program of infant massage instruction in a group or with individual baby and parent.
This Infant Massage Instructor Course is based on theories of attachment and attunement, supporting infant mental health, and best-practice. It will add to your professional skills and build on what you are already doing with parents and families with an infant aged in the first thousand days.
This training is suitable for professionals working therapeutically with infants in the first thousand days and their caregivers, including frontline and specialist workers in homelessness and family and domestic violence services, therapeutic children’s workers, reunification, and intensive family support practitioners and those in community early childhood settings.
The course consists of four online topics, support from a course coordinator and an in-person day for demonstrations and sharing.
We are taking expressions of interest for this Infant Massage Instructors course which will begin in mid to late June 2023.
