Dear Mumsnet, I'm starting a Music Therapy course in September and as part of this I need to take part in a 1 hour weekly Mother/Infant observation session between September and December. Students on this course are particularly concerned with the non-verbal communication between mother and baby, and this will be valuable for future clinical work. I would be very grateful to any families who could enable this observation to take place and I understand that this would be a privilege to be welcomed into your home and I would be as unobtrusive as possible. Nothing special is required of the mother, I am there only to observe (not take notes, give advice or play with the baby). If you would like any further information please telephone one of the tutors on 0208 392 3423/3788 (9am-5pm, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) or contact me via e-mail.
