Webinar: ‘A different perspective on sleeping, crying and eating for babies’


This is a recorded webinar


Get introduced to the latest science-based approach to babies with sleep, crying and feeding problems. None other than the Australian researcher and author Pamela Douglas will give a webinar about the Possums & Co program she developed.

Its methodology, the official name is Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC), was developed on the basis of 15 years of research. It introduces a vastly different way of conceptualizing and treating problems in young children. Pamela, for example, tells us that problems in young children in the field of sleeping, crying and nutrition are inextricably connected. They continually influence one another. We have to look at that integrally and do so from multiple disciplines.

Pamela will explain this way of working in the coming webinar, especially for IMH Nederland and Vakblad Vroeg. A unique opportunity to ask her your question. For example, she says:The logic is that babies don’t need to be taught to sleep – if their other needs are taken care of, they’ll simply take the sleep they need.” Pamela has written the book ‘The discontented little baby’ which is praised for its fresh outlook and research-based interventions are appreciated by both professionals and laymen.

This webinar is interesting for lactation consultants, preverbal speech therapists, youth health employees, psychologists, pedagogues, medical pedagogical care providers, infant mental health consultants and specialists, practice nurses at the general practitioner, general practitioners, pediatricians, and youth doctors.
