In collaboration with the Anna Freud Centre, Amanda was involved in the Channel Four documentaries 'Help me love my baby', winner of the 2007 Royal Society of Television's best factual programmes award. She speaks at national and international conferences on psychodynamic parent-infant treatment and teaches on the clinical psychology programmes at UCL and UEL.
