Protective Sleep Program for New Parents
Dr. Linda Berg-Cross will focus on the importance of parental sleep for new parents. By combining knowledge about infant development, family relationships, and behavioral sleep medicine, clinicians can help families get off to a healthier start as new parents struggle with the first year of a child's life. The Protective Sleep Program (PSP) is a skeleton structure from which clinicians can mold the program to fit the unique needs of each family while keeping the structural protective elements intact.
