Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) System. Training workshop for professionals

August 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - August 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

The NBO helps parents get to know and bond with their baby as a person. It is a brief, flexible, relationship-building session that helps parents observe and understand, together with the clinician, their infant’s behavioural capacities and preferences. Through a set of 18 neuro-behavioural observations, parents identify the kind of support their infant needs for successful growth and development, from birth to the third month of life. These observations include the infant’s:

  • capacity to habituate to external light and sound stimuli (sleep protection)
  • quality of motor tone and activity level
  • capacity for self-regulation (including crying and consolability)
  • visual, auditory and social-interactive capacities and preferences (alertness and responsiveness to human and non-human stimuli)

NBO training is relevant to a range of professionals who work with families with newborns and very young infants, including midwives, maternal and child health nurses, paediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians, social workers, perinatal psychiatrists, infant mental health clinicians and family support workers.
