Learning Through Play Plus
LTP Plus is comprised of two components; Learning through play (LTP) and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). The central feature of the LTP intervention is a pictorial calendar devised for parents which depicts eight successive stages of child development from birth to 3 years along with illustrations of parent-child play and other activities that promote parental involvement, learning, and attachment. The CBT sections include step-by-step instructions for each session organized into modules. The modules focus on the following three areas: the mother‘s personal health, the mother-infant relationship, and the psychosocial support of significant others.
The aim is to train Lady Health workers, Nurses and Midwivesin psychosocial interventions for reducing stress in parents and improving child health outcomes.
