Getting Started with CPD
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a standard requirement for most professionals working in a health-related role.
Professional members of Baby in Mind are required to undertake a minimum of 20 hours of activity each year to support the maintenance of their skills and knowledge, and toward their development as an educator and facilitator. As well as completing relevant CPD activities, members must also keep records of evidence that they have completed their CPD requirements.
The following resources will help get you started with understanding your CPD requirements, including information about the evidence you need to keep. They provide an overview of the Baby in Mind CPD program, details about the types of activities that count toward CPD, the topics you can count toward CPD, as well as rules about the evidence you need to keep.

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.
