Oxford Parent Infant Project



The Oxford Parent-Infant Project (OXPIP) provides short-term, intensive, therapeutic support to parents and their babies from conception to two. 

OXPIP is a highly-regarded provider of specialist parent-infant training. We run two tiers of training programmes; one to train up the next generation of parent-infant therapists, and one to share our knowledge of attachment with early years professionals. Our programme has a national and international profile, with attendees from all over the UK and abroad. OXPIP is commissioned through various bodies to provide specialist training, consultancy and supervision for professional teams and individual practitioners, both locally and nationally. 

COVID-19 UPDATE: All OXPIP face-to-face training has currently been suspended. While face-to-face is our preferred method of teaching, we are exploring moving some of our training online, so please watch this space. Due to the content of our training, not all of our courses will be able to be delivered online.

At OXPIP we are enthusiastic about helping practitioners and professionals recognise the importance of reflective practice, and to create a space for this within their work. 

We know that relationship-based work requires a relationship-based approach to training, and intend that our trainees will go away having drawn upon their own experiences, feeling invigorated and inspired to continue to use their learning to develop their practice.

Short Courses we currently offer:

  • Attachment Theory
  • Watch, Wait and Wonder
  • Assessing Parent-Infant Relationships
  • Ghosts in the Nursery

Extended Courses we offer:

  • Parent Infant Therapist Diploma
  • Parent Infant Practitioner Training

We also deliver bespoke training, tailored to your specific organisational context and needs.
