Promoting a Paradigm Shift in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Service Delivery Models 

An independent and interprofessional Community of Practice on Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (CoP-IECMH) will offer a summative review of a proposed paradigm shift for programs, practices, and policies intended to support young children and their families.

CoP-IECMH members are seasoned professionals from the fields of psychology, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, education, and social work.  They collectively share a belief that current early childhood systems of care often fall woefully short of best practices known to be evidence-based, effective, and relational, and sadly often fail to honor the humanity and dignity of all children and all families.

This presentation will summarize several key concepts of the paradigm shift including:

  • You matter: Reflective practice and reflective capacities as critical elements of care
  • We matter: The neurobiological impact of trauma and unmet interoceptive/sensory health needs on development, co-development, and learning
  • Context matters: Liberation from socio-political influences on infant and early childhood programs
