The 2021 series entitled “Strong Roots Encounters: Equity Matters for Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health'' CONTINUES THIS FALL - 2021. Dr. Rosenblum will facilitate understanding of Zero to Thrive’s “Strong Roots'' model, designed to promote resilience in pregnant women and families with young children, highlighting the power of positive relationships for healing.
We will continue to discuss the 5 core components of the Strong Roots Model including attachment-based parenting, supported parent-child interactions, enhanced social support, connection to culturally relevant community resources, and provider self care.
We center discussions around issues of race, power, inequity and bias as we explore implications for mental health and wellbeing of infants, young children, and their families in our community and our local systems.
Nursing, Social Work, and CELP Continuing Education Units will be offered for each session.
