Tweddle's 91st AGM 16th November

Posted by Kerrie Gottliebsen | 07/11/11

Tweddle was honoured to host Parent-Infant & Child Institute Director and Assistant Clinical Professor of Paediatrics V.F at U.C Davis, Dr Kristie Brandt at its 91st AGM on Tuesday 16th November.  Dr Brandt, an internationally recognised expert on infants and young children,  delivered an engaging, passionate and thought provoking insight into therapeutic, evidence based training for optimal child development.

We were reminded how love and safety are key to a child’s healthy development, as is the impact of early care giving on epigenetics, neurobiology and behaviour.   Guests also learned of important research into how prenatal stress can impact the child long term. 

Dr Brandt took a tour of Tweddle’s residential unit following her talk.   She reflected on how early parenting centres did not exist in America and how blessed Australia is to being showing leadership by supporting services like Tweddle.
