I am studying a Msc in Psychodynamics of Human Development with a view to re-training as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. The masters is focused on childhood development and the best way to study this is by observing the beginnings of development through a process called "infant observation".
I am looking for a family based in South London (I am in Herne Hill) who would be happy for me to visit for one hour per week, for up to two years, ideally starting when the baby is about 2 weeks old. We will of course ensure this is Covid secure, and so can meet outside (weather permitting) or arrange for the observation to take place over Zoom. There would be no need for the family to do anything beyond deciding on the time for the observation, as I would simply observe what the baby is doing at the agreed time.
I've attached a letter from the course confirming my attendance and I have an up to date enhanced BDS certificate for working with children.
I would be hugely grateful if anyone reading this could consider volunteering. If you may be even the slightest bit interested please do get in touch at email@example.com
or 07775814239 and we can discuss the questions that I'm sure you'll have and work out if it might be suitable for both of us.
Many thanks in advance
