About this event
Tessa Baradon’s work leading the Parent Infant Project at the Anna Freud Centre and in initiatives around the world, has shown how even the most traumatised babies and their families can be helped.
In this interview with Jane O’Rourke for MINDinMIND, hear how she works, with videos from her consulting room showing her transformational therapeutic work.
Tessa will share how her framework can deepen our understanding of the communication of babies and their relationships with caregivers.
We will hear clinical cases to illustrate the therapeutic process that is involved and why ‘repair’ is an important part of the work for professional teams as well as the families they are helping.
Tessa will share her experience of working with vulnerable and at-risk populations such as babies who are born to mothers in prison.
Tessa’s work has taken her all over the world. She will discuss why there is much to learn from the wisdom of different cultures.
And Tessa will share the pivotal role ‘daddiness’ can have in children’s lives.
