Learning and Applying the Holistic Science of Sleep Method: Designed for Parents and Professionals

Learn the Holistic Approach to Child Sleep that Begins Before Baby is Born based on our founder Mar De Carlo’s Holistic Science of Sleep Method and book “Awakening Through Sleep.”

Mar says, “Our bodies do not need to technically be “trained” to sleep. By nature’s design, human bodies are already programmed to sleep and will do so if we support the process and uncover what is getting in the way. “

The HSS Method does not believe in a “one size fits all”  approach to sleep consulting. Instead we use what our founder Mar has coined as “Sleep Optimizing” strategies to thoroughly investigate and address imbalances in optimal human function (physical, mental, emotional) and external forces (social, cultural, environmental) that inhibit sleep and may lead to adult and child sleep challenges during pregnancy, parenting during infancy and beyond.

This self-paced program consists of 10 modules and will examine the entire context for sleep – the physical, emotional, social, developmental and environmental factors – and learn to understand the natural factors that regulate and influence sleep through a various stages of human development development.

Often parents and professionals rely so heavily and get hyper focused on books and rigid methods that they overlook what their body or their child’s body is teaching them about sleep. 

You will learn:

  • How to solve sleep challenges through “sleep optimizing” strategies that do not involve the use of “one size fits all” methods.
  • Understand how to uncover the root of each sleep challenge that inhibits the body’s natural ability to sleep.
  • Understand and  consider what underlies adult and children behaviors and temperaments in the context of sleep to discover the root of the sleep challenge, respond to a range of sleep goals, and identify and discuss factors that may impact healthy sleep habits.
  • How to work with pregnancy sleep in order to support mom and baby’s sleep and take preventative measures to prepare for child sleep.
  • How to address key issues through thorough investigative work, discovering the root that may be contributing to sleep disruption rather than jumping too quickly to implement a “one size fits all” approach. 
  • The scientific and natural foundations of sleep, how it works in our modern day living.
  • Understand the interplay between the science of sleep, the behavior of sleep, lifestyle, beliefs and the emotional well-being component of sleep.
  • Understand how nutrition affects sleep.
  • Understand how lifestyle, energy, expectations and behavior affects sleep.
  • Learn how birth trauma and secure attachment affects sleep.
  • Learn how an eco-lifestyle affects sleep.
