Parent-infant psychotherapy baby clinic groups
The Parent-Infant Project collaborated with community-based baby clinic services to introduce parent-infant psychotherapy drop-in groups into routine baby health clinics.
The aim was to provide a culture that could address the emotional needs of infants and their parents in universally available and non-stigmatising healthcare settings.
The first project took place in a residential hostel for homeless families. The second group was introduced into a universal baby health clinic in the community. Both projects have been evaluated and are now completed.
