If you’re working with very young children and their parents,
you’ve come to the right place.

The California Association for Infant Mental Health (CalAIMH) advocates for the needs of all children ages pre-natal to five in the state of California. We are transdisciplinary in our approach; we welcome everyone, from any field or profession, who wishes to be informed about infant mental health.

Together we will ensure relational health for all young children in California.

Cultural Complexity from and Infant Mental Health Lens
Nov 10 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am
Culture is complex, dynamic, and present in caregiving interactions. Promotion of Infant Mental Health must be culturally informed.

About this event

This live virtual training has been designed to examine how culture impacts the developmental journey of the young child, birth to five. We will define constructs including race, culture, ethnicity, privilege, and systemic racism. From an understanding that culture informs identity, ego, and relationships, we will describe culturally informed relationship engagement practices. Furthermore, we will engage in a challenging review of our dominant culture developmental science expanding our lens to consider the perspectives of marginalized communities, disenfranchised individuals, and the groups that remain absent from our developmental constructs. This training is a must for agencies seeking to build a work force aligned with a vision of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
