I am a second year trainee on a Dip/MA Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy course with a college in Hendon called Terapia, (see www.terapia.co.uk), which is affiliated to Middlesex University. I live in South London with DW and 11 year old DD. I work as a Domestic Violence Prevention Worker, running groups out of South and East London.
I am currently looking for a mother with a 7-8 month old baby, (in the London area), who would be willing to be observed in the family home for an hour a week over 30 sessions. My last Mother and Baby Observation stopped because the couple I was observing moved abroad. I've been struggling, since then to find another baby, being a man, the majority of women and their partners (understandably) are very cautious of having someone of my gender come and observe in the family home on a weekly basis.
If any mum would be interested in having a chat or receiving more information about what's involved, I would be happy to provide references from the Nursery at which I am currently undertaking a Toddler Observation in addition to paper work from my college and current CRB documentation.
