‘Supporting parents when they are really struggling: with Amanda Jones’

AIMH UK Scotland Hub is delighted to welcome Amanda Jones, Clinical Lead, North East London NHS Foundation Trust, Perinatal Parent Infant Mental Health Service.

Amanda will talk about a way of understanding good enough ‘parental care’, understanding what processes can make it hard for a parent to give this to their baby and how to have conversations that can help.

This presentation will be followed by a discussion and small group reflections about how the ideas relate to our practice.

Tickets: AiMH UK members free, Non-members £15

You are invited to stay on after Amanda’s talk for our hub network event!
