2021 Illinois Evidence-Based Practices Virtual Conference Series: Defining and Understanding Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (I/ECMH)

August 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


I/ECMH is the developing capacity of the child from birth to 5 years of age to form close and secure adult and peer relationships; experience, manage, and express a full range of emotions; and explore the environment and learn—all in the context of family, community, and culture. I/ECMH addresses the needs and strengths of the child, the needs and strengths of the primary caregiver, and the quality of the caregiving relationship. This webinar will define I/ECMH, overview guiding principles and approaches, highlight the importance of early childhood trauma, and discuss practices and strategies for attending to I/ECMH. How equity overlaps with I/ECMH will also be discussed throughout.
