A Brief Introduction
Dr. Charles Zeanah took a moment to introduce the newly released Handbook of Infant Mental Health, Fourth Edition, at his book signing at ZERO TO THREE’s Annual Conference 2018.
Handbook of Infant Mental Health
Handbook of Infant Mental Health showcases evidence-based approaches to assessment and intervention and describes applications in mental health, primary care, child care, and child welfare settings.
Foremost experts explore neurobiological, family, and sociocultural factors in infant mental health, with a major focus on primary caregiving relationships. Risk factors for developmental problems are analyzed, and current information on disorders and disabilities of early childhood is presented.
