Nurture and Nesting - Helping Parents through Neuro-Dramatic-Play

(previous webinar title - Supporting Parents Both Pre and Post Birth to Bond with their Baby)

I love your presentation thank you Sue

Amazing Sue- thanks!

Thank you Sue - very informative

Webinar Description

90-minute webinar

Gain a practical and playful insight into ways to help parents to build attachment and bonding to new borns in this LIVE 90 minute webinar. 

Traditionally, the term usually used was bonding to establish the unique relationship with a new baby.  Nowadays the term attachment is used.  The essence is the same: how can we develop and maintain that important connection, especially in times of economic and social anxiety?   The more we can strengthen this relationship the more stability will develop for the child’s emotional future.  We shall be using techniques drawn from ‘Neuro-Dramatic-Play’ which emphasises the sensory and rhythmic play in the early life of all children.  You will learn simple take-away techniques that can be easily incorporated into childcare routines.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar you will be able to have:

  1. Understanding of attachment and bonding
  2. Skills of Neuro-Dramatic-Play (NDP)
  3. NDP for pregnancy and new-born time
  4. Creative ways to develop trust and confidence

Presenter - Professor Sue Jennings



Professor Sue Jennings PhD is an anthropologist, therapist, performer, and author. She is Senior Research Fellow, The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham

Distinguished Scholar, University of the Witwatersrand, Honorary Fellow of the University of Roehampton, and Professor of Play - awarded by the European Federation of Dramatherapy. She has been a pioneer of Dramatherapy and Play Therapy in the UK and overseas.

Professor Jennings' paradigm ‘embodiment-projection-role’ is integrated into education and therapy world-wide. Having worked as a clinician in psychiatry, forensic settings and special education, she has focussed her recent practice and research on early years development and developed ‘Neuro-Dramatic-Play’ as a basis for attachment and empathy.

She emphasises the importance of ‘play from conception’ for healthy emotional and social growth. Her doctoral fieldwork was with a tribal community in the Malaysian rain forest, which she believes underpins all her childhood theory and therapy. Sue is a prolific author with over fifty publications on theory and application to her name. She believes passionately in ‘playing for peace’ with a rule of ‘no guns in the playroom’.
