Many parents become frustrated by their child's sleeping patterns. They may try to implement sleep schedules, or sleep training in an effort to try to manage their fatigue. However, understanding how sleep fundamentally works can not only optimise sleep, but also reduce parental frustration, improve connection, and increase confidence. Sleep occurs best in a non-stress state - therefore utilising strategies that increase child stress levels is likely to be counter-productive. Equally, experiencing stress for any reason may reduce the ease with which we can support sleep. This presentation discusses a holistic approach to supporting optimal regulation, attachment, emotional connectivity and naturally optimised sleep.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Explain the key principles of basic sleep biology.
Objective 2: Describe the importance of homeostasis in regulation.
Objective 3: Explain the role of stress in regulation.
Objective 4: Describe the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and sleep.
Objective 5: Explain how responsive, attuned care leads to less dysregulation.
Objective 6: Discuss how to facilitate parents to be calm, confident and connected to improve sleep.
