The NBO course is the finest training in the country for assisting professionals in understanding the behavioral language of the newborn and using this knowledge to support parents as they get to know their new baby.
Training is offered as part of the University of California Davis Extension 2017-2018 Napa Infant-Parent Mental Health Training Program in Napa, CA
Registration Fee: $260 (Lunch included)
Registration includes the training, learning materials, NBO Toolkit, ongoing mentoring for up to 16 weeks during completion of certification, and the NBO Handbook, Understanding Newborn Behavior & Relationships. There is no additional cost for the full certification process which is optional and will be explained at the training. This process includes 5 independent newborn assessments and parent questionnaires completed by learners on their own and sent to the Brazelton Institute for review. Supportive mentorship during this process is provided at no cost for up to 4 months after the training.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES - As a result of this training, participants should have the ability to: 1) Demonstrate increased knowledge of the capacities of newborns and their contribution to the early infant-parent relationship; 2) Describe the 18 neurobehaviors of newborns observed during an NBO; 3) Independently administer an NBO.; 4) Identify clinical skills necessary for using the NBO to scaffold the infant-parent relationship; 5) Describe regulatory behaviors in stressed and high risk infants; and, 6) Explain the process for achieving certification in clinical use of the NBO.
ABOUT THE TRAINING: The full-day NBO training is designed for clinicians working with infants 0-12 weeks of age and their families, and is an interactive professional development opportunity combining lectures and experiential, hands-on learning. The NBO consists of a set of 18 neurobehavioral observations that describe the newborn's capacities and behavioral adaptations. This structured set of observations supports clinician and parent in observing and appreciating the infant's unique capacities and vulnerabilities, and in identifying the kind of support the infant needs to optimize their growth and development.
