Respectful Care and the Relationship with the Adult
During the course, we will discuss the importance of attentive and respectful physical care in addition to some less well known aspects of the Pikler® pedagogy, such as the child’s developing social behaviour, and the characteristics of respectful communication.
The course will underline the importance of the quality of daily care/caregiving interactions (diaper changing, dressing, nose wiping etc.) related to children forming their self-image and need for bonding. Participants will observe (analysing video footages of the Pikler® Institute) how infants and toddlers express their needs and how much they learn from the adult during these situations.
We shall also discuss the special elements of the parent-child relationship and the relationship between the child and the professional carer, educator or nurse.
- What children learn during diaper change
- Individualized care situation in the day-care: the quality of care
- Free movement on the changing table – a key for cooperation
- The journey of the child: from breastfeeding to autonomous mealtime
- Specific and difficult situations during feeding time
