Adult and Pregnancy Sleep: An Integrative Approach for Family Sleep Solutions has been described as; “a powerful workshop that will transform your profession and the strengthen the lives of many families.”

 

Due to lack of information, support, stress, and/or ongoing sleep deprivation following the birth of a child, parents often resort to behavioral techniques (aka sleep training) such as; cry it out or even “no cry” sleep solutions. In doing so, the core foundations to healthy sleep, and emotional well-being of the child and the family as a whole are often overlooked, or at worst, neglected. These are usually desperate measures which can have a negative and/or traumatic effect, even after experiencing a healthy and powerful birth.

 

 

During this 90-minute continuing education webinar, you will learn the model, approach and techniques so you best support the families you work with to make healthy, considerate, and informed choices about their child’s (and their) sleep. Mar brings her wealth of knowledge and experience, and aims to deliver the following objectives:

 

  • Gain a deep understanding of an integrative approach to family sleep and learn a few simple practical tools to begin working with

  • Addressing common sleep challenges without needing to sleep train

  • History of Child Sleep and Child Sleep Training

  • Why Sleep Training is Controversial and Most Often Not Necessary

  • Transitioning from the words Sleep Training to new possibility

  • Holistic Foundations vs Behavioral

  • General vs Specific Advice

  • Getting to the Root

  • Sleep Lifestyle Components, Tools, and Practical Applications

 

Newborn Fundamentals:

How to Develop Positive Fundamentals the First 12 Weeks

Offered by Terian Gregory APSC CEO

$75 APSC Members

$99 non-members

April 3, 2018 11AM PDT/2PM EDT

$25

The purpose of the material is to provide a clear outline of information for Sleep Consultants that they can use to support new parents and families through the first twelve weeks with their newborns.  Building positive, developmentally appropriate fundamentals that are conducive to sleep and positive sleep behaviors will be reviewed.

Course Goals & Objectives

  • To provide clear and detail information that Sleep Consultants can utilize with their clients.

  • To engage the Sleep Consultant in an active learning environment where questions and participation are integrated.

  • To provide quality information that has a variety of approaches and parenting styles respected and represented.

Terian believes that most babies have the ability to sleep through the night (10-12 hours) by the age of 12 weeks.  She believes that newborns instinctively have the ability to "self-soothe" and will gradually stretch the amount of time in between feedings at night if their environment allows them this opportunity - This is the key to sleep learning!

 

For many sleep consultants, assisting clients with newborns, and babies under three months can be daunting. Many consultants avoid working with families of young babies for the fear of giving the wrong advice, lack of confidence, and/or experience or knowledge on this age group and associated issues such as colic, reflux, settling, and scheduling issues.

 

In this comprehensive, two-hour course (divided into an easy-to-digest three parts), Terian provides a combination of experience, insight, knowledge, and her unique professional approach, to help consultants feel more confident in assisting new parents with young babies. “I am hoping that this training will encourage them to explore this age group a bit more or become more confident in it.”

There is also the option of an additional one-hour live Q & A session with Terian, offering further support to consultants who desire a more personalized option.
