Part II: Best Practices in Training and Treatment of Infant-Early Childhood Mental Health Concerns**

In order to understand and treat the developmental, behavioral, and relationship needs of the child, clinicians and providers must focus on the parent-child relationship. Early childhood mental health intervention requires working with parents and young children together in a way that helps attend to the needs of both–together and separately.

Part I: The Foundations of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health**

This webinar focuses on the unique mental health needs of infants and young children and the provision of mental health services for children under the age of 5. Participants will learn about key principles, skills, and strategies, including: the importance of attachment, relationships, responsive caregiving, as well as challenges that can disrupt these processes. Relationships that are socially and emotionally responsive form the foundation of healthy development for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.
