Our one-day training course is for practitioners working with (expectant) parents, to support bonding and attachment in pregnancy and beyond. It includes online access to our Peep Antenatal Programme, and it can be used to complement or in combination with other practical antenatal information or support that you offer expectant parents.
Practitioners will develop their understanding, confidence and skills in:
enhancing parents’ ability to think about and bond with their baby and tune into their feelings before and after the birth (reflective functioning), creating a strong base from which the baby can explore the world
developing and supporting secure parent-infant attachment relationships, leading to better outcomes for the child in terms of their cognitive development, the relationships they build and their resilience to cope if life gets tough.
Please book at least 10 working days before the course starts to ensure your delegate pack reaches you in the post.

Access to regular supervision supporting Peep Antenatal Programme delivery. (Supervision should provide a safe and supportive opportunity for practitioners to: identify instances where referral to other services may be required, reflect on their practice and how they and parents(-to-be) feel about the sessions, talk through challenges, share good practice, critically assess and adjust how the programme's core ideas are working.)
The Programme is not for expectant parents with complex problems, unless they have additional specialist support.
