Hello Everyone 🙂
Voluntary Infant Observation Opportunity For a Master Degree
Hope you are all well and staying safe.
I am 22 years of age and have just finished my BSc in Psychology and I am currently studying a Masters Degree in Psychodynamics of Human Development at Birbeck University in association with the British Psychotherapy Foundation , as I aspire to become a Child & adolescent Psychotherapist.
An essential component of the degree is infant observations which all aspiring psychotherapist are required to do. This will involve me observing a baby and their family in their day-to-day environment once a week, one hour per session, for two years excluding any holidays, other life commitments etc as I understand people are busy so I am very accomodating and adjustments can be made.
I will be more than willing to arrange an initial meeting with you to explain the details. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the initial meeting and the subsequent infant observation process will be arranged online (Skype, Zoom etc).
The observational process is non-directive, non-interventional. I will be like a listener rather than a teacher/instructor. With your assistance, the study will have an opportunity to learn from your emotional attunement with your baby in a day-to-day family environment.
This project is completely voluntary and tell help an aspiring psychotherapist. The details of the observational process will be kept strictly confidential. I have a Enhanced child and adult DBS on request.
I understand this is a big ask but I would be very appreciative as fulfilling this degree is so important to me and my development as a Child Psychotherapist.
Any questions or queries regarding this opportunity, please do not hesitate to send me a message on next door, Facebook or email me.
Even if this not something you would necessarily be interested in , if you could pass this on to friends and family i would be extremely grateful.
Parents who have previous been involved have felt this was a great opportunity for them to contribute to a better understanding of how infant/mother relationship unfolds so as to help improve dysfunctional or disturbing relationships of other infants and their mothers/carers. We can't help mothers/carers and infants in distress without first understanding the healthy development of that relationship.
I will be able to provide any official documentation from my university and any other information you require.
I have been searching since September and haven't had any luck so far - so any one who can share the word, I would apperciate it.
Have A Good Week everyone !
Or direct message me if you have any questions
