***Editor’s Note: This will be the last FREEBIE post in this format. Moving forward, each freebie post will contain several different freebies – ranging from webinars, research, podcasts, classes, trainings, CERPs and private practice tips to free breastfeeding artwork, client-friendly articles, handouts, lactation resources and last but not least, tips and tricks for lactation professionals. This is not an exhaustive list, just a bit of what’s coming up!
GOLD Birth & Beyond 2020 is a brand new online conference coming up soon from our friends at GOLD Learning! This event is perfect for healthcare professionals working with families throughout the perinatal and postpartum periods. This new online conference from Gold runs from October 5 to November 30 – complete with 12 internationally renowned speakers. Presentations cover topics including disparities in care among women with disabilities, parenting the high-needs baby, perinatal mental health, and much more.
I know you’re probably asking yourself, “Where the heck is my FREEBIE?” Well, to kick off Gold’s new conference on October 5 (that’s today!), Britta Bushnell, PhD will be sharing her Opening Keynote presentation “Awakening the Parent: Are You Supporting or Sabotaging Your Client’s Transformation?”
This presentation offers an opportunity to reexamine the way we approach teaching new parents. Dr. Bushnell will highlight how we might unknowingly reinforce the mindset that experts hold the knowledge that parents need. She’ll share ways that we can instead support parents to grow into a position of being autonomous and self-guided, with a sense of inner authority. You won’t want to miss this chance to hear these insights and to gain some new tools!
This is a free event so be sure to register and access all the info! The presentation will be shared live two times (yup, you read that right, TWO times: 1600 UTC and then again at 2300 UTC). If you missed the live versions, don’t fret. As long as you register to reserve your seat, you will have full FREE access until October 30, 2020. You can reserve your free seat and read about all of the details here.
***Disclaimer: Only those registered for the entire GOLD Birth & Beyond 2020 Online Conference will receive CERPS. CERPS are not available if you are just registering and attending the free webinar, however, you will obtain a Certificate of Completion after finishing the webinar.
