If you work for a third sector organisation that works with parents or carers of infants and young children, then you may want to enhance your skills promoting infant mental health and development.

In six weeks, you will:

  • Explore what is meant by infant mental health in line with the Scottish Government’s Early Years framework and further your understanding of this period of a child’s development which shapes future outcomes.  
  • Be introduced to the ideas of conscious and unconscious factors involved in early developmental processs.
  • Explore new thinking about early preventative interventions and develop observational skills, both related to infants and work generally with infants and their families. 

The next courses begin online on 26th and 28th April 2022. The closing date for applications is at noon on the 14th April 2022.
