Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health
Community Conversation Series 

November 18, 2019

Speakers:  Stephanie Umaschi, PhD. & Elaine Gabellieri

Topic:  Partnering to Support and Learn from Foster Families

Foster families provide essential care and essential relationships for infants and young children who have experienced trauma. These fostering relationships present both challenges and opportunities. This session will discuss a partnership between the Center for Evidence Based Practice at Bradley Hospital and The Village for Rhode Island Foster and Adoptive Families. This partnership brings the knowledge, experience, needs of foster families together with the knowledge and experience of the Bradley professionals in a joint effort to create a supportive system – one that grows from relationships among adults with the shared purpose of supporting infants, young children, and their relationships with all of the adults who touch their lives.

Location:  Rhode Island College, Alger Hall 110

Time:  8 am (check-in); 8:30 - 10:30 am (program)


  • Free for Members
  • $25/session for Non-Members
  • Free for Rhode Island College / LEND students (show valid student ID at registration table)
  • CEUs are an additional $25 - You can sign up and pay for CEUs at the door on the day of the event.

With thanks to our community partners and supporters.
