Recipient Org: Description BrightPIP’s vision is to change the future for Brighton and Hove, one baby at a time. We want every baby in our community to grow up feeling safe, secure and loved. Our mission is to intervene at the earliest time with families to prevent maltreatment and support parents to have positive relationships with their children. We intend to ensure parent infant psychological therapy (PIP) is freely available to all families in Brighton and Hove who are struggling to form a secure bond with their baby. Therapeutic support is in Children’s Centres in the form of antenatal groups, talking therapies, video guidance and individual baby massage sessions. To support this we offer training and consultation to referrers and practitioners who work directly with families. The post-natal period, and the first two to three years of a child’s life has been identified as the most crucial time in terms of the developing brain. It has been found that this is when, on a neurological level, the ‘social and emotional bedrock’ for the self is formed. This lays the foundation for future mental health, emotional well-being, resilience and eventual parenting ability. In a secure parent-baby attachment, there is a strong robust relationship which allows each child to form good relationships into adulthood. However, it is estimated by the WAVE trust that of the 3,300 babies born each year in Brighton, 495 are likely to develop an insecure attachment. Our work makes a positive change in our communities as it directly addresses the difficulties that lead to the inter-generational transmission of trauma.
