This webinar featured a facilitated interdisciplinary panel discussion of a case study. The panel included Dr Nick Kowalenko (psychiatrist), Mandy Seyfang (OT/Infant mental health therapist), Jonathon Main (Relationships Australia). Dan Moss, Emerging Minds’ Workforce Development Manager facilitated the discussion.
Through an exploration of contemporary research around infant mental health, and how this translates to positive and proactive practice with both infants and their parents, participants will:
- identify early intervention and prevention opportunities in work with parents
- outline strategies to engage parents respectfully and collaboratively
- outline common practice challenges for professionals working with infants and their families.
