Enhance Safety and Connectedness Between Mothers and Babies During COVID-19

Convened by "No Limit Generation" the workshop will be led by two speakers, Phyllis Aries, an occupational therapist specializing in neonatal intensive care, and Dr. Marilyn Sanders, M.D. Professor of Pediatrics, University of Connecticut School of Medicine & attending neonatologist at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. 

In the context of COVID-19, with physical distancing, viewing relatives outside of immediate families as contagion risk, the normal connections that help young children, babies and families feel safe have been disrupted. The workshop will explore the ways in which caregivers and families can overcome these barriers to stay connected with their children and develop positive feedlings of safety.

The workshop is designed for parents, social workers and healthcare professionals who will learn: 

  • How to navigate the social disruptions of the pandemic to safeguard your infant or young child's emotional health and development.
  • Helpful methods to support healthy sensory regulation, comfort, and sleep for young children and infants.
  • How to overcome challenging thoughts and emotions through effective self-care techniques.
