VIDEOS FROM NOVEMBER,2011
KidCareCanada Launches new video
KidCareCanada Society and Vancouver Native Health Society launched the DVD “Emotional Safety” at Sheway, in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side on October 26, 2011.
Three Minute Promo of Emotional Safety
Compelling research points to the importance of early attachment and nurture for the life-long well-being of a child. The Emotional Safety DVD bridges the gap between research and the practice so that all new parents can be informed about what their baby really needs, and how they can provide it.
Researchers interviewed as part of the video include Tom Boyce, Janet Werker and Adele Diamond.
A community launch of the video will take place November 23, 2011 at the Phil Bouvier Centre.
