Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Workshop Series

Join Brazelton Touchpoints Center for a three-part workshop series focused on infant and early childhood mental health. Registration for this event is available online.
Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation is a capacity-building intervention that supports the mental health and social-emotional well-being of children, families, and providers who work with them. Family Connections is an evidence-based, system-wide model for mental health consultation and professional development.
This three-part virtual workshop series based on the Family Connections model is for you if you are a Mental Health Consultant, Family Service professional, or early childhood systems leader. Each workshop provides knowledge, skills, and strategies that you can bring right back to your setting and implement them in service of the staff and family well-being. And, for Mental Health Consultants, this series will provide you with a workshop model for professional development in the programs for which you consult.

Workshops

Workshop topics include:
  • Overcoming barriers to family-staff partnerships | 3/10, 2-3:30 p.m.
    • Building strong family-staff relationships – key to young children’s development- is an ongoing process. Explore challenges to building these relationships and strategies to overcome them.
  • Understanding depression and fostering resilience | 3/17, 2-3:30 p.m.
    • Learn more about depression, and how you can help family-facing professionals reach out to family members about mental health concerns while keeping in mind their cultural values and beliefs.
  • Talking to children about sensitive topics | 3/24, 2-3:30 p.m.
    • Learn how to support family-facing professionals when discussing sensitive issues with children and families from diverse backgrounds, and how they can care for themselves during these conversations.

Cost

Each workshop costs $35, or all three workshops may be bundled for $90. Group rates are available by contacting Brazelton Touchpoints Center.

About

Coined the She-cession, the economic fallout of Covid-19 has disproportionately affected women in key ways. Women are one-third more likely to work in a sector that was shut down during the lockdown, more likely to be furloughed, and 47 percent more likely to have lost or quit their jobs. And, women shoulder more child care responsibilities and household work than men.
