Two-day, advanced workshop
The Erikson Institute’s Fussy Baby Network® and Infant Massage USA® are partnering to offer a one-of-a-kind, two-day, advanced training continuing education workshop for Certified Educators of Infant Massage (CEIMs).
Participants will learn the Fussy Baby Network’s FAN approach to parent engagement. The FAN approach offers professionals a framework to guide interactions with parents, particularly when parents have an urgent concern about their baby and/or are experiencing high levels of stress.
CEIMs will gain skills to support parents in their Infant Massage classes who are experiencing early regulation issues such as excessive crying, disrupted sleep, feeding issues or general fussiness. Training in the FAN approach guides professionals to understand what might be most helpful to parents in the moment, and how to respond in a way that matches their baby’s needs. Additionally, this advanced training will provide Infant Massage Educators with more insight into infant regulation based on Heidi Als’ Synactive Theory of Development.
Registration is now closed.
