IECMH Guiding Principles Webinar #4: Quality, Access and Reflective Practice

VirtualRegister

Brain growth during early childhood (from prenatal to 5 years old) is critical. These formative years lay the foundation for cognitive, emotional, and social development. Providing enriching and supportive experiences that are culturally responsive, accessible, and of the highest quality during this period is vital for infants, toddlers, and young children. Whether in direct services (such as clinical or educational roles) or non-direct services (like policy or administrative positions), professionals serving families with young children benefit from reflective practice because it enhances their ability to support families responsively. Join this webinar to explore ZERO TO THREE’s IECMH Guiding Principles #9 through #12 related to quality, access and reflective practice in IECMH, and how you can apply these principles in your everyday practice:

  1. Early experiences matter—optimal brain growth occurs during early childhood (prenatal to 5 years old).
  1. Infants and young children have a right to high-quality, culturally responsive, and accessible treatment when experiencing significant stress, trauma, and demonstrated mental health and/or developmental disorders.
  1. Reflective practice is an essential tool to support those who serve families with infants and young children, through direct services (i.e., clinical, educational), and non-direct services (i.e., policy/systems/administrative positions).
  1. Multiple and diverse relationships are at the heart of quality services for families.
