Ko te ahurei o tamaiti arahia o tatou mahi
Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work

This symposium featured an interesting lineup of speakers delving into aspects of the social, emotional and relational health of pēpi and young children – and their relationships with their caregivers and wider whānau.

Highlights included:

  • Dr. Jane Barlow from Warwick University on the developing relationship between a parent and child when the child is in utero.
  • one of our patrons, Dr. Patricia Champion, discussing infants and young children who develop in different ways and/or are differently abled and what this brings to the infant-parent relationship.
  • Dr. Kelly Waiana Tikao (University of Otago) sharing insights on infant mental health from a Te Ao Maori perspective
  • plus lots of other speakers presenting on a range of interventions, parenting programmes and reflections on work in the infant mental health space, including in the ECE sector.

If you work with children supporting their social, emotional, physical and/or relational health, this event was for you!
