Kira Charles and I had the great pleasure to present Child’Space Method to the staff of Columbia University Early Head Start located in Inwood, NYC. Our half-day workshop focused on helping parents to bond with their newborn babies using touch and movement techniques of the Child’Space Method. We were so moved to hear about the population that these wonderful educators work with – mostly recent immigrants living in very difficult conditions. The feedback was wonderful – they said things like, “I’ve been looking for an approach that respects infants as human beings the way Child’Space does.” Or, “I realize how much more I need to be aware in my own body, in order to help the infants and parents I work with.”
I am very interested to connect with more social service agencies to present Child’Space, or to arrange Child’Space classes. Please leave feedback here in the comments section below this post if you have connections to an organization that might be interested. Thanks everyone!
