RIAIMH's Community Conversation Series (CCS) is a 6-session (monthly) series that is organized around a broad theme to showcase IMH-relevant research, clinical practice, and/or policy work in RI. Our goal is to offer professional development opportunities that serve to enhance knowledge of (and are aligned with) the RI Infant Mental Health Competencies and Endorsement®. Participants are encouraged to attend the full series to experience the arc of conversation about the topic, deepen connections with others in the RI infant/family workforce community, and broaden awareness of the range of innovative leaders in RI.
Our current CCS addresses the critical topic of diversity and culturally informed practice. We explore how we might understand and use the Diversity-Informed Mental Health Tenets, a set of guiding principles developed by the Irving Harris Institute and adopted by the national Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health (Alliance). We offer this CCS as an opportunity for members of the infant/family workforce to engage as a community around deepening our thinking, understanding, and self-awareness, as we strive towards personal growth and systems change.
Total PD: 2 hours/session; up to 12 contact hours/year
The Community Conversation series is open everyone. RIAIMH members may attend at no cost.
