The Hippo

Professional development opportunities for people working to promote infant mental health.

View the Hippo online
The Hippo is a magazine of professional development, training and education opportunities for people who work with babies and their families.
People who work with babies and their families play a pivotal role in early mental health development, performing some of the most important work in the Australian community.
The Hippo is a publication that brings together a wide range of professional development and training opportunities to support this vital work in infant mental health promotion.
We also include professional development opportunities to support medical, health, early childhood and welfare professionals who work with families in private practice.
The Hippo cover image is excerpted (with permission) from an enamel on composition gold leaf artwork by Greg Dunn called Hippocampus II (2010). The hippocampus is part of the human brain helping to regulate emotion and memory. During infancy and early childhood, the hippocampus grows in size and develops in direct response to the level of nurturing and responsive interaction the baby experiences in her relationships.

Block 2

You can start Block 2 after completing Block 1 and enrolling in the course.

This block is made up of 10 weeks of interactive online learning. Learning activities include video, readings and discussions, and a small assignment is due each week. Depending on your learning style, allow 3 – 6 hours a week to complete the set activities. In addition, trainer support is provided by phone, email and online discussions.

Block 3

Attend a 3-day training in your capital city. These infant massage workshops are held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. These workshops will help bring together your theory knowledge and apply it in a practical setting. This includes working with real parents and babies under the supervision of your trainer during the three days.

Block 4

Following Block 3, complete your practical assessment by delivering the full First Touch Program with parents in your community. You will run all phases of a program from planning and promotion, through to delivery, and evaluation and reflection. Support will be provided in a combination of online materials and support from your trainer.

Approximately 70% of your assessment is completed during your 10-week online learning block (block 2).

After your face-to-face infant massage workshop (Block 3), you have a further four months to complete your practical and remaining assessment items.

However, you may request an extension up to 12 months from the commencement of your 10-week block, if required.
