This one-day free training course provides information on infant neurodevelopment, attachment theory and promoting responsiveness and sensitivity in parents. Delivered by highly specialist clinicians, our training aims to support practitioners in their work with families to help give babies the best possible start in life.

We provide both a theoretical knowledge base and space for you to apply this in practice. It is hoped that you will leave the training feeling more confident in your work supporting complex parent-infant relationships.

Post-training support: training participants can attend Infant Mental Health in Action training and consultation events: reflective practice groups, ongoing consultation and drop-in sessions.

The Little Minds Matter project is commissioned to offer the training to Health Visitors, Midwifes, Family Hub staff and Better Start Project Staff as a priority. We also offer the training to anyone who works in Bradford with parents and / or infants. If you are not sure if you meet this criterion then please contact us on 01274 251298 to discuss.

Please note that our Infant Mental Health Awareness and Infant Mental Health in Action training is free for attendees who work in Bradford City and District. If you work outside of Bradford and are interested in attending the training, we do offer this at a cost. Please do get in touch with us if you are interested
