Where Our Story Begins
“How we are welcomed into this world matters and influences us for the rest of our lives. Birth Psychology is a field of study that explores the lifelong impact of our earliest conscious awareness beginning in the womb. Our pregnancy, birth, and attachment experiences have an ongoing and cascading effect on shaping our adult lives. These foundational relationships, in turn, impact our world in a profound way.” APPPAH 2021

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.
