Sleep Issues Awareness programme

This programme has been accredited by CPD Standards Office

The aim of this awareness CPD accredited programme is to support practitioners to understand normal sleep and how to prevent sleep and settling issues occurring and to increase practitioner confidence and competence in managing sleep and settling difficulties.

The workshop explores normal patterns of sleep and the factors that contribute and cause sleep and settling difficulties in the under-fives. There is exploration of the impact poor sleep has on babies, children, adults and the costs and public health consequences of this. Promoting safe sleeping using the NICE Guidance and the issues that arise in practice will be investigated, exploring how practitioners can work in partnership with parents to resolve issues.

Using a Compassionate Mind Approach (CMA) participants will explore how they can support parents who are facing sleep and settling issues using evidence-based strategies and recognising when onward referral is needed. The CMA is based on Professor Paul Gilbert and colleagues’ work which promotes an evolution and neuroscience-informed approach to compassion to alleviate mental health difficulties and promote wellbeing
