About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity
for early childhood educators.

Theories about the importance of attachment in early childhood are long established, however practice with young children has not always reflected this.  Awareness of the impact of trauma on child development in infancy is growing, and new efforts are being made to pay attention to the mental health needs of young children.
Kathy Eyre is an expert in infant and family welfare particularly in relation to trauma in infancy.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online.  Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
