B.A.S.E.® staff

B.A.S.E.® staff consists of B.A.S.E.®- trained group leaders, mentors, and trainers. This is where you will find information about the functions and activities of each of the B.A.S.E.® staff.

UnderEvents/ B.A.S.E.® you will find the individual meetings and will be given the opportunity to enrol in B.A.S.E.® seminars and continuing education programs.

B.A.S.E.® group leaders

B.A.S.E.® group leaders conduct B.A.S.E.® Babywatching sessions in nursery schools, schools, or daycare centers. During these sessions, the children sit in a circle and observe a mother or father and her/his baby, who are seated on a blanket on the floor in the middle of the circle. The motheror father and her/his child engage in everyday sorts of activities such as feeding, nursing, diapering, playing, and the like.

B.A.S.E.® group leaders help the children to empathise with the inner worlds of the mother or father and baby by asking very targeted questions.

B.A.S.E.® group leaders also make every effort to find candidate mothers well suited to the B.A.S.E.® Babywatching program. This means trying to find mothers or fathers who are sensitive and empathetic, because this also teaches the children how to empathise with the needs of the baby, and what fosters attachment between mother or father and child. This sensitive behaviour toward others is something that the children can then generalise to their own relationships.

B.A.S.E.® mentors

B.A.S.E.® mentors supervise the B.A.S.E.® group leaders. This entails meeting with the B.A.S.E.® group leaders and making oneself available for any questions that may arise. Mentors and leaders watch and discuss videotapes taken during B.A.S.E.® group sessions. B.A.S.E.® mentors also keep B.A.S.E.® group leaders apprised of news and innovations that affect them.

B.A.S.E.® trainers

B.A.S.E.® trainers offer B.A.S.E.® training seminars for teaching staff from different institutions. In addition, they meet in supervisory sessions with the B.A.S.E.® mentors regularly. It is very important to the success of the B.A.S.E.® Babywatching program that communication takes place freely and frequently between all three levels of the B.A.S.E.® team. This is the only way that the program can continue to evolve and innovations be integrated.
