Infant Mental Health Services: Supporting Competencies/Reducing Risk (2nd Edition 2003)
New! Available on CD!
The knowledge gathered here, informed by research and evaluation, is grounded in years of practical experience and offers an invaluable guide for practitioners, supervisors, policy makers, and others interested in delivering services that promote infant mental health.
The new manual includes topics addressing a spectrum of tasks and issues relevant to the infant mental health practitioner, supervisor, program developer as well as evaluator. The table of contents highlights the comprehensive nature of the text through the inclusion of sections titled Identification, Referral and Enrollment; Arrangement for Services; Intervention Strategies; Special Circumstances and Administrative and Organizational Issues, among others. Of particular note are new chapters entitled “The Infant With Regulatory Disorders”, “The Infant Who Is Abused or Neglected”, and “The Parent Who Abuses Substances”. Ms. Tableman and Dr. Weatherston have included resources for practitioners and parents, as well as an extensive reference section specific to the infant mental health field.
The development of the new volume was underwritten by a grant from the Division of Mental Health Services to Children and Families, Michigan Department of Community Health.
