Certificate in Infant Mental Health Studies: A Three-Year Module Program

The course aims to provide those working with children, families and/or adults, with current knowledge about infant/early child development, assessment and intervention which will compliment their ongoing clinical work.

In the first year, we provide a weekly, 3-hour seminar, offered for 30 weeks.  It is a clinical experience where you have an opportunity to directly observe early development of the child and parental response and become aware of the child's capacities, functioning, personality development, roots of psychopathology and the parental strengths and characteristics that contribute to the possible psychopathology in the child.
