Three Day Course – Introductory to Infant Mental Health

Infant mental health is an inter-disciplinary field of research, clinical practice and public policy-making concerned with maximizing the emotional, physical, social and cognitive well being of zero to five-year-old children and their caregivers.

Introduction to Infant Mental Health: Issues and Practice, a three-day, 18-hour program, is typically offered on two consecutive days of instruction and discussion, followed by a third day scheduled a few weeks later. The Association has found that this format provides the greatest opportunity for reviewing, strengthening and personalizing basic concepts and learning related to Infant Mental Health in relation to the specific backgrounds and service settings of individual participants.
