Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) for Early Intervention Professionals @ Brazelton Touchpoints Center
Jun 11 @ 9:00 am – Jun 12 @ 4:30 pm

This session of Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) training is designed specifically for Early Intervention professionals working with parents and at-risk infants.

The Brazelton Institute is a training institute for clinicians and researchers, which provides training on the Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale (NBAS) and the Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) system.  The NBO is a clinical relationship-building tool used by pediatricians, nurses, infant mental health specialists, physician and occupational therapists, social workers, early intervention providers, home visitors, and other allied health professionals, to help parents understand their baby’s language and promote a positive relationship between parent and child from the very beginning.  The NBAS, now in its fourth edition, is the most comprehensive examination of newborn behavior available to researchers today. It used by researchers to study the effects of wide range of perinatal variables such as prenatal exposure to alcohol, tobacco, cocaine and other drugs, low birth weight, environmental toxins, cesarean section and other pre- and perinatal variables.

We are pleased to announce that three Continuing Education Units will be awarded through the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Continuing and Professional Education on completion of the Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) training program.

All trainees who sign up for the NBO training program are eligible to apply for continuing education credit, which will be awarded upon completion of the program.
