|Subject Overview:||Students may have the option of undertaking a traditional infant observation where a baby is observed in its own home or an alternative observation where a baby is observed in a day care centre, hospital or neonatal nursery. Students wishes, learning needs and past experiences will be taken into account. The student will attend to observe the infant(s) for a minimum of one hour and a maximum of three hours per week making detailed process notes and analysis to be presented in turn at the seminar. Details of observations are to be recorded in a log book and students will circulate their recorded data to the other seminar participants and leader. Students will develop observation skills which are fundamental to all therapeutic work and will gain an appreciation of their own responses and how to use these in working with infants and their families.|
