RIAIMH sponsors many professional development opportunities every year to educate professionals about the latest infant mental health research and policy developments, and help professionals apply evidence-based principles in their practice.
If you work with pregnant women, infants, young children, or their families—whether they join you in a pediatric or primary care office, classroom, courtroom, or child care center—we encourage you to take advantage of these programs.
Continuing education units are available for many of our workshops and trainings. RIAIMH members qualify for discounted rates at all RIAIMH-sponsored events.
