Infant Mental Health Program

York University - a top Canadian university - has announced an extended certificate program in "Infant Mental Health" working in concert with the "Sick Kids Hospital". This seems like a good step forward in early identifcation of brain disorders which should result in earlier treatment and better outcomes. Too bad the course isn't available over the Internet - I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in participating.

This Program is designed to provide front-line service providers with essential knowledge and practical skills to encourage positive parent-infant interactions and promote optimal developmental progress in infants. The Program is directed to those interested in working effectively in the field of infant development, prevention and/or early intervention with infants with special needs, and with infants living in high-risk environments.

The Ceritificate is offered by York University - Atkinson
College in collaboration with Infant Mental Health
Promotion Project, The Hospital for Sick Children & Ontario Association for Infant Development

It is a 120-hour non-degree credit Certificate for a broad range of
front-line services providers and managers who wish to acquire
essential knowledge and practical skills to work effectively with infants and their families.
