Understanding baby brains and responsive parenting 04/10/2017




A masterclass for anyone.

This masterclass is compulsory for students who are studying for the University Certificate Public Health Foundations (Children and Families).

From the moment we are conceived, our brains are constantly changing and storing all our experiences. This masterclass focuses on what research tells us about the first 1001 days of life, a period when baby brains are growing at a tremendous pace and are being shaped and changed every single minute of every day. Most important is how a baby feels. There is evidence to show that the way parents communicate with babies and young children affects their brains. We will explore how parents can communicate with their babies in order to create healthy baby brains with love.
