Tomorrow, 11th November | 2pm | Free
Join developmental psychologist, director of Goldsmith's InfantLab, and author of The Laughing Baby, Caspar Addyman, for this illuminating and uplifting talk and Q&A event.
Exploring the first two years of an infant's life, this event won't focus on the commonly-discussed moments of stress and confusion for adults and babies, and how these impact on early years cognitive and emotional development. Instead, Caspar wants to tell you why it can be GREAT to be a baby!
Together you'll explore how parents and practitioners can use their in-built instincts - not only to provide personal care and sustenance, but to tickle and play peekaboo - that have been honed over millennia, to help seed the beginnings of art, science, music and happiness in our children, and create a bond that parents and infants share as they navigate the challenges of childhood.
Attendees will leave the session with a better understanding of the rigorous scientific research which shows how laughter impacts on infant cognitive development, and an appreciation of why babies' laughter is the key to understanding our adult selves.
This event will take place on Zoom. Book now to receive the event link and further information.
