Description:
Infant Mental Health (IMH) is an interdisciplinary field and embraces the importance of promoting positive mental health development within a relational framework with the child’s caregiver(s). IMH practice is best understood along a continuum which includes promotion, prevention, intervention and treatment integrated across services and disciplines. IMH principles incorporate developmental, clinical and preventative perspectives that inform the practice of service providers of different disciplines whose original training may have emphasised a different knowledge base and different skills. Some lack knowledge about infant development and behaviour in the early years, but have a strong clinical understanding. Others are well prepared to meet the developmental needs of very young children but may be new to infant mental health principles and practices. For most, working within a relational framework is new and requires specialised education and training relevant to each individual discipline but, more importantly, also on how best to integrate IMH principles across disciplines and services. The work in this document discusses the implementation of this training and an analysis of its benefits in the HSE North Cork Child & Family Psychology Service (NC-CFPS) and Community Work Department (CWD).
