One of the things I love about being a child life specialist is the wide range of professional development opportunities that are relevant to my job. I love to add new skills to my toolbox and I’m excited about a training I’m taking in April. I’m going to do a two-day certification course for health professionals on infant massage through the Loving Touch Foundation. I’ll learn to teach parents and caregivers how to safely and gently massage their infants to promote bonding and relaxation. This training is April 6-7 in Houston, TX at Texas Children’s Hospital, but there are multiple training dates and sites around the country. If you want to add another calming modality to your child life practice, feel free to find out more information at the link below:
Just for the record, I have no financial connection to Loving Touch or other organizations, products or services listed on my blog. I only write about things that interest me.
