Happy International Women’s Day

Wishing you all a very happy International Women’s Day. I hope you find time during the day to reflect on the importance of this day,  where we have an opportunity to mark the success and achievements of women in society

but also of the journey ahead where there is still much to be done, and how each of us in our work, and personal lives can ensure can contribute to  an equal and just society.

Just to remind you  that our SICAP  Team we have organised a series of events this week SICAP #BreaktheBias link to events schedule , can I please ask you to promote these events with the groups and individuals you work with.

Working with babies, young children and parents is particularly challenging when the parent’s capacity to care is impaired and the baby and/or small child’s basic emotional needs are not being met.

Join our webinar to hear from Dr. Amanda Jones and Catherine Maguire on the challenges working with families when caregiving capacity is impaired, how to intervene and how reflective practice leads to better understanding of oneself in the work.
