This Region 8 event will provide an overview of Infant Mental Health (IMH) and attachment theory. Participants will utilize case presentations for a deeper understanding of IMH practice, as well as how social workers can incorporate IMH clinical skills in other practice settings.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Teach a basic understanding of Infant Mental Health. Infant mental health is the social and emotional well-being of the very young child in the context of family relationships, beginning at birth and extending through the preschool years.
  2. Teach that depression can be observed in the first 2-3 months of life, as can attachment disorders, problems with regulation of behavior and emotions, and other developmental difficulties. Risk factors have been identified, developmental pathways are much better understood, and methods to identify children at risk are continually being improved.
  3. Teach how especially in a service context emotional problems can be prevented through multi-disciplinary, flexible, coordinated and supported by strong, child-oriented policies.
