Perspectives in Infant Mental Health - Call for writers

Perspectives in Infant Mental Health Journal - Call for writers

It is especially thought provoking to understand that every infant and family is affected by forces far beyond their reach, forces that may strengthen or hinder social, emotional and relational health. A truly global organization, WAIMH invites professionals from around the world to contribute to its quarterly, open-source publication, WAIMH Perspectives, offering insights into the ways of seeing and being and working in diverse contexts, cultures and communities with infants, very young children and their families.

We are calling for: commentary, field reports, case studies, conceptual or theory building papers, research articles, book reviews, news from WAIMH affiliates and (when proper permission can be obtained) adaptations of previously published articles.

Our shared hope is that Perspectives will offer a space for interesting observations and articles around the world that promote reflection and interdisciplinary discussion.  We publish Perspectives quarterly throughout the year.  An open-source publication, members and others interested in infants and infant mental health have access to current and archived issues. The format for each article may be quite informal or formal, but within these guidelines:
  • Double spaced
  • 12 point font
  • 250 words per page
  • APA, 6th edition for style
  • Articles of varying length are welcome. However, length should not exceed 10 pages, word format

Send pictures and tables in separate files, with a resolution of 72 pixels/inch.

Send you submission to: Editor of Perspectives: Maree Foley,
