“A Piece of My Heart”: fostering attachment through Parent Child Mother Goose

Sheila Lindfield

“It affected my life hugely”, says Sheila Lindfield, about her experience of taking part in the Parent-Child Mother Goose program as a new parent.  “The importance of using song and rhyme and story as a way of communicating with young babies is now nailed into my soul.”

In a recent audio interview, part of the BC Council for Families’ Voices of Family podcast series, BC Parent-Child Mother Goose coordinator Beth Hutchinson sits down to talk with Sheila Lindfield, Registered Clinical Counselor, Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and longtime Parent-Child Mother Goose supporter. Sheila was first introduced to Mother Goose as a parent, attending the program weekly with her young son. In fact, Sheila was one of the first people in BC to attend a Parent-Child Mother Goose program, taking part during the first year that the program was offered in the province.

Sheila shares with listeners the wonderful impact that the program had on her own family and explores how the theories underlying the program become a recurring theme in her ongoing work with families.

Join Beth and Sheila as they delve further into issues such as social and emotional resilience, responding to babies’ cues and much, much more.  Listen in!
