Development and relationship formation in the earliest years of life creates the foundation for the future well-being of individuals, families, and society. The interdisciplinary field of Infant Mental Health offers a relational, culturally-sensitive and integrative approach to addressing early childhood challenges and attachment traumas while working with infants, toddlers and families in the first three years of life. This lecture will provide a basic introduction to Infant Mental Health, an essential field of study that incorporates a comprehensive systems approach to prevention and early intervention.
