Students will become familiar with the theoretical foundations for understanding all aspects of the infant's development and infant/parent relationships.
Methodologies with which infants have been observed and studied will be examined and students will become familiar with key psychoanalytic and psychodynamic concepts and models for understanding the infant and family experience. Theories of child rearing including cultural aspects, how family and social context impinge upon the infant's development, and some common problems of early infancy will be examined.
Students will be introduced to the techniques used in communicating with and assessing infants and examine some of the therapeutic results of such intervention.
Advanced Training in Infant and Parent Mental Health requires student participation in seminars via presentation of class papers, reading of the relevant research and discussion. Consequently, 85% attendance is necessary and expected as part of meeting the course requirements.
