Baby Cues: How Babies and Young Children Communicate Their Needs Through Nonverbal Behaviors
Who is this for?
What can you expect to gain from this workshop?
During this workshop, participants will:
learn about state regulation for infants and young children.
practice their observation skills watching video tapes of caregivers and children interacting.
learn to identify the four broad forms of cues: displacement cues, assertive cues, regulatory cues, and engagement cues.
CEUs for mental health professionals and STARS hours are provided.
This presentation will guide the audience to become better observers of infant and toddler non-verbal communication. Participants will also learn how to link baby-toddler communication with what the child feels inside their body and how that feeling leads to certain behaviors. Once adults understand the meaning behind non-verbal communications, their options for responding become more attuned with the child’s underlying emotional and physiological needs which result in improved caregiver-child interaction and better wellbeing for both.
