Counseling with young children ages 0-5: Infant Mental Health

Updated: Jun 14, 2021


I have three loves when it comes to the field of mental health: play therapy, infant mental health, and perinatal mental health. For me, there is a clear bridge between the three areas as one cannot happen without the other. However, generally across the fields, there is a lack of bridging and cross-training among providers. My hope is that the more awareness we bring to this need, the more training, and support that will be available for clinicians. In this video, I share some tools for therapists looking to learn or increase their awareness of working with this exceptional population.
