Infant Mental Health Part 2: A Closer Look
May 7th 12-1pm
This webinar continues to explore infant mental health and builds on the content of the previous webinar Keeping the Babies in Mind. After a quick review of basic infant mental health principles, the webinar will provide an overview of the development and screening of social and emotional development; trauma and its impact on the brain and subsequent development; and how to support mentalization in parents and ourselves as child life professionals. Note: Anyone who didn’t watch Keeping the Babies in Mind is strongly encouraged to watch the recording before the upcoming webinar.
