Sleep Issues Awareness programme

The aim of this awareness programme is to support practitioners to understand normal sleep and prevent sleep and settling issues occurring and promote safe sleeping working in partnership with parents, and increase confidence and competence in this.

The workshop will explore normal patterns of sleep and the factors that contribute and cause sleep and settling difficulties in the under-fives. The impact poor sleep has on babies, children, adults and the costs and public health consequences of this will be examined. Promoting safe sleeping using the NICE Guidance and the issues that arise in practice will be investigated and how practitioners can work in partnership with parents to resolve issues.  Using a compassionate mind approach participants will explore how they can support parents who are facing sleep and settling issues using evidence-based strategies and recognising when onwards referral is needed.
