Course aim
The University of Oxford, in partnership with the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative, is working to share knowledge about the science of brain development for families and professionals. This is important information for everybody to understand how our earliest experiences can affect our long-term mental and physical health. Following their well-received key-note session as part of our conference ‘Talking Together’ in November 2021, we are pleased to welcome back Louise and Elizabeth from The Oxford Brain Story to offer some further training in this area.

Trainers: Dr Louise Dalton (consultant clinical psychologist) and Dr Elizabeth Rapa (senior postdoctoral researcher) from The University of Oxford

Target group: A welcoming and accessible session which is suitable for anyone working with babies, children and parents. No prior knowledge is needed.

Cost: Free in Oxfordshire Out of County £30
