Network Meeting

In October 2014 Incredible Families and the New Zealand Association of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists (NZACAP) had a successful day focused on ‘What Happens when Infants and Children Lead the Way? Watch, Wait and Wonder – Theory, Practice, Training and Research’. Two cases were presented and there was a positive response to having extended time to consider case material.

This network meeting will similarly allow us space and time to discuss the intervention. The cases will scaffold discussion around specific components of the work and further developments with the intervention.

In October 2009 Incredible Families ran the first Introductory Training in this intervention in Australasia. Planning that training began in 2008 and we hope to celebrate with Elisabeth Muir our achievements over 10 years of working together.

It is timely to begin this new initiative supporting our relationships with each other and our work with this intervention.
