1st National Brazelton Touchpoints Training

Last week, a group of 25 trainees had the amazing opportunity to learn all about the Touchpoints approach in a fantastic two day course with Dr Jayne Singer and Dr Ann Stadtler.

It was a very intense and dynamic training, with role plays and opportunities for discussion, guided by the Touchpoints principles and assumptions (e.g. focus on the parent child relationship; communicate through the child's behaviour; value disorganisation and vulnerability as an opportunity; acknowledge that all parents have something critical to share at each developmental stage). The course covered the development period from pregnancy to 6 years old.

Comments from the trainees after the course:

Thank you for organising the TP training, I truly hope it spreads across the UK and would be happy to help this. I loved it!

I really enjoyed the training and wish I had more early years contact in my post to apply it within. However I found myself reflecting on the similarities in adolescent developmental stages and have been being touchpoints informed in my day to day work with families in that context.

Thank you! I really enjoyed the course and am already implementing it into my practice.

I feel very grateful of having been trained on Touchpoints. Feel that it has enriched my practise at work, but there are limitations of the impact on the service as a whole as I am the only one trained in my workplace- in favour of potential criteria for future training in the UK- offering touchpoints training to teams rather than to individual people.
