Primary care pediatricians and newborn discharge nurses give
caregivers good guidance about a newborn’s physical health:
how to bathe and feed them and take their temperatures.
However, they seldom address infants’ social and emotional needs.
Social-Emotional Targeted-Anticipatory guidance, SET-AG, is a
novel educational intervention developed by Doctor Anselm

newborn-discharge-nurses the direct tools to bridge that gap.
With SET-AG, these healthcare practitioners deliver the essence
of true nurturing to caregivers in a short, easy to understand,
and clear manner. The SET-AG domains include maternal
sensitivity, communication, calm and regulation, affect
attunement, and synchronicity. These five components not

health of infants and children. Here is a brochure I have created
