Advanced Clinical Skills for Management of Breastfeeding, Cry-fuss, Sleep and Mood Problems: Masterclasses in Neuroprotective Developmental Care
('The Possums Programs')



Are you a mental health expert? We are announcing a new Mental Health Stream within our NDC Accreditation pathway! Experienced clinical psychologist and NDC accredited practitioner Narelle Dickinson, who specialises in perinatal and infant mental health, will offer separate education and Live Network Hours for mental health experts, upskilling in clinical strategies for psychological and infant mental health challenges. In the F2F Masterclasses, these will be run concurrently with some of our other modules, so that we can tailor the Masterclass days to meet the needs of mental health experts. 

Breastfeeding difficulties and unsettled behaviour are modifiable risk factors for postnatal depression, yet parents report being overwhelmed by conflicting advice; babies are often treated with pharmaceutical and surgical interventions which don’t improve outcomes; and many breastfeeding problems remain unidentified and unmanaged though women seek the help of multiple providers. Join our 2020 online modularised masterclasses for clinical upskilling! (register below.) Our Masterclasses offer you the foundational evidence-base; now, in response to demand from our participants, we are offering you opportunity to learn and practice the specific NDC clinical skillsets. We'd love to have you join us! Click here for an overview of the program.

Benefits of our Masterclasses:

  • CPD points
  • Networking and collegiality
  • Join in discussions, ask questions
  • Practice new skills with educator support
  • Discounted opportunity to join NDC Accreditation Pathway and portal resources

For those unable to join our Oct/Nov 2020 online Live Modularised Masterclasses, our Masterclasses are also now available to view whenever you wish, once you join the NDC accreditation pathway. Viewing them online whenever you wish costs $500 AUD, but they are automatically available at no extra cost to NDC accreditation participants who have already done the Masterclasses F2F. Our Masterclasses online include speakers from all Masterclasses to date.
