BABY LOVE: AN EVIDENCE-BASED PREVENTIVE INTERVENTION TO FOSTER SECURE ATTACHMENT RELATIONSHIPS

Jean Wittenberg, Head, Infant Psychiatry Program, Co-Chair, Infant Mental Health Promotion, Hospital for Sick Children, Associate Professor University of Toronto

Baby Love is a preventive intervention that helps caregivers foster secure attachment relationships with their young babies.  A randomized control trial has shown significant improvement in maternal sensitivity and in reflective functioning.  Brief training enables community based professionals to deliver it to caregiver-baby dyads in groups or individually.  This presentation includes descriptions of the intervention, training and research and also shows the posters and video clips that can be used to support both group and individual versions as well as to support community education about infant attachment and mental health.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learning about an evidence-based intervention that effectively improves maternal characteristics associated with secure attachment in infants.
2. Learning about ways to apply aspects of Baby Love to support caregiver-baby relationships.
3. Learning about ways to apply modern communication techniques in a community-based education project.
