Conference & seminar papers

On 27 November PAN Children will host the second in the series where Katharine Frost from Ububele will present on the theoretical underpinnings of the approach taken to further build up our understanding of these projects which focus on infant bonding and attachment. ECD policy is progressive but there remains a gap between policy and intervention. The centrality of relationships is acknowledged but needs to be translated into practice. Carol Bews will practically demonstrate the beneficial effect of the Granny programme on babies.This will precede the third in the series, where the outcome of an evaluation will be presented and which is scheduled for early 2018.
