Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health
Community Conversation Series
October 21, 2019
Facilitators: Pam High MD, Khadija Lewis Khan MEd & Susan Dickstein PhD
Topic: "No Small Matter": Partnering in Early Care and Education
We begin this event by viewing the documentary film “No Small Matter”. This film lays out the evidence for the importance of the first five years, reveals the critical importance of infants’ and young children’s early relationships and early care, as well as underscoring the urgent need for community attention to the need for high quality care for all infants and young children. We follow the film with two discussants -- one a pediatrician, the other a clinical psychologist. The discussants will comment on the film, speak about their own experience of partnering with ECE providers and programs in support of infant mental health, and reflect on the role of this kind of partnering between ECE and health care in supporting quality care for children and families.
