The London Hub welcomes you to AiMH UK. What we can post and share together in this space will help us more broadly understand the wide range of work happening, and the many different organisations or individuals working with babies and their families. Let’s join up our thinking and our work where we can! We look forward to hearing from you on the London Hub Forum.
Dilys Daws with Sarah Sutton’s ‘Parent Infant Psychotherapy for Sleep Problems’ (Routledge 2020) is a wonderful addition to the literature on the subject of infant sleep. This book includes infancy research, a psychoanalytic perspective on infant sleep problems and case studies.
A lecture on ‘What is Normal Infant Sleep? A view from Anthropology’ was given on 11th Nov 2020 by Professor Helen Ball of the Durham Infancy & Sleep Centre and it is still accessible on YouTube, together with the Q & A.
You can find everything we do on our website, the Baby Sleep info Source where we have resources for parents and healthcare professionals, including downloadable information sheets and an infantsleep app. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
AiMH UK National Conference + IMH Awards.
Friday, 27 November 2020, 10.00-13.00 (online via Zoom)
The conference provided opportunities to reflect on the traumatising effects of the recent COVID-19 pandemic on parents and infants, and the importance of a mentalising stance to enable families to recover.
If you missed it, we hope to see you at the next AiMH conference, or at one of the Hub events – see the Hub pages.
Bristol and Gloucestershire have long been hubs of infant mental health activity, thanks to the initiatives of the late Dr Paul Barrows (Child Psychotherapist, previously Chair of AiMH UK) and Robin Balbernie (Child Psychotherapist, and Board member of AiMH UK).
This is the place where we can share news about local IMH events, training, organisations, and share our ideas and resources.
If you would like something posted here, contact your Hub leads on the Hub discussion forum (select big blue link above).
If you have resources you would like to share with AIMH members across the UK, please go to Forums and add to the Member shared resources forum.
