The Brazelton Centre UK provides training on the Neonatal Behavioural Assessment Scale (NBAS) and the Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) system, since 1997.
This year we are very pleased to offer the first national course in the Touchpoints Model and to host our 20th Anniversary Conference in September.
The NBAS is an assessment of newborn babies and is suitable for those practitioners or researchers who want a detailed look at baby behaviour. The NBAS identifies behavioural states, neurodevelopmental systems and self-regulatory abilities of newborns from birth to 2 months old. There is self-practice phase on up to 25 babies, in order to achieve over 90% reliability on scoring for certification.VIEW COURSE DETAILS

The NBO is a relationship-building tool between parent and baby and parent and practitioner suitable for babies from birth to 3 months old. It highlights baby behaviour, looking at sleep and crying like the NBAS, and helps parents to identify the kind of support the baby needs for successful growth and development. It also helps practitioners know what areas are need for support of the parent-baby relationship. There is self-practice on 5 babies and evaluation of the recording forms for completion.VIEW COURSE DETAILS
Touchpoints are moments in a child’s development when it is an optimal time to provide support for parents. Understanding development deepens the relationship between parents and practitioners, fostering children’s (0-6 years old) full developmental potential. This is a two-day training course including child development and reflective practice.VIEW COURSE DETAILS
