In infancy and early childhood, nurturing family relationships provide the foundation for social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. The resulting positive infant mental health is key to long term relationships and mental health. Early positive relationships can lead to resilience in the face of life’s challenges.

Upcoming Events

  • March 9th, 2023. “WCAIMH Case Review”
  • Hello members,

    We’d like to share that this upcoming Thursday our regular WCAIMH meeting will be a case review. If you have a case you would like to bring to the table to discuss it will be a great opportunity to have our diverse group explore this with you. If we have a good number attending and we have a few cases, we can potentially go into breakout rooms to have a more focused discussion. If you do not have a case you’d like to bring up please do ensure you join us and support our other members with theirs; you are all an asset in our field and this is a great opportunity to learn and support each other.

    We look forward to seeing you this Thursday, March 9th at 5:15-6:45pm via zoom. Please contact aris@develop.bc.ca for the Zoom link!

  • March 7, 2023. Lunch & Learn!
  • Hello everyone,

    Hope you are doing well. It may not look like Spring yet, but we am hopeful it is around the corner!

    It’s almost time for our next Lunch & Learn – a noontime Zoom-time for us to connect as colleagues and dive in to current research related to infant mental health (and published in the Infant Mental Health Journal). Last month we explored the idea of “reflective supervision” and discussed how our programs do this currently and how. There is a “part 2” to this article, so we will be picking up that conversation again with the second part of the article. You can find it here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/share/YRXEKS3ZTJNUPBSFESGA?target=10.1002/imhj.21975

    Amy will summarize the article if you aren’t able to read it before our meeting so please do not feel pressured.
