Issued bimonthly, the IMHJ publishes peer-reviewed research articles, review articles, brief reports (including clinical case studies and novel pilot studies) and thematic collections that focus on early relationship development and other early relational contexts, such as attachment relationships and early relationships within parenting, family, and caregiving systems, impacting the social and emotional development of very young children, prenatal-5 years of age. All work published in IMHJ reflects robust infant and early childhood mental health frameworks.
The journal supports interdisciplinary research and approaches to address the needs of infants, toddlers and young children in diverse contexts around the world, particularly children in high-risk contexts. Editor-in-Chief: Holly Brophy Herb, PhD, IMH-E®, firstname.lastname@example.org. The IMHJ is a critical resource for practitioners, program & policy leaders and researchers. Related to the needs of practitioners, authors who submit to the IMHJ are asked to provide 3-5 bullet points that describe the practice implications of the research findings presented and the relevance of the work for infant and early childhood mental health.
