Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) — Two-Day Training (Chicago Area)

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) systems.

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 is used by researchers to study the effects of a 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.
