Infant Mental Health is equivalent to the social and emotional development in our youngest children, ages 0-5. Social and emotional development sets the important foundation for children’s future learning and growth. It represents a young child’s ability to experience, express, and regulate emotions; form close, secure interpersonal relationships, and explore his or her environment. This all takes place within the context of family and cultural expectations. This training will explore the essential development that takes place in infancy, early childhood and the importance of early relationships. We’ll discuss the impact of stress on young children’s brain development and the importance of early identification and intervention. We’ll also highlight the importance of policy and programming to support our children’s bright futures.
