Climbing Mountains and Building Bridges: Essential Steps Toward Providing Culturally Informed Infant Mental Health Services
This training will draw on professional literature and relevant research to consider the complexity and many facets of cultural diversity. Through guided interactive discussion that includes case vignettes, participants will reflect together on how the history of our experiences shapes our developing selves, including our beliefs, values behaviors and relationship based work with infants/toddlers and families. We will examine the ongoing process of using self-awareness as a core component to the provision of diversity-informed Infant Mental Health services and offer strategies to assist in acknowledging, confronting, and actively supporting differences in all people. We will also discuss ways of healing in our work with families and with each other.
