WAIMH Webinars

Keeping Infant Mental Health in Focus in Times of Crisis 

For WAIMH Members and Registrants for the 17th WAIMH World Congress

  • You need to be a WAIMH member or a registrant for the "17th WAIMH World Congress for Infant Mental Health" to register to these webinars. 

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially early invited to join three webinars sponsored by the World Association for Infant Mental Health in the month of June 2020.

As you know we had planned to have the 17th World Congress for Infant Mental Health in Brisbane in June this year, but as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic the Congress has been postponed to June 2021.

We realise that in this time of crisis, it is important that as professionals working with vulnerable infants and families, we remain connected and able to discuss the issues which face us in our day-to-day work. A range of contributors have generously offered their time for the webinars to share their experience and understanding of work with infants and families. Some of the presentations will focus on particular issues facing the field of infant mental health during this current pandemic, other presenters will talk about more general aspects of clinical work with infants and families.

There will be 3 webinars of 2 hours each which will be delivered via zoom and are available at no cost.
