We are very excited to present the 2018 version of the IECMH Professional Development Compendium. It contains more than 100 trainings offered by over 20 agencies for cross-systems professionals working with infants, young children, and their families. Opportunities for both para- professionals and professionals with a variety of educational backgrounds are included, from trainings for individuals with associates degrees to offerings geared towards advanced-practice clinicians with masters and/or doctoral degrees. Infant and early childhood mental health services aim to support child and family competence within their socio-cultural context, reduce risk, and intervene in functioning that threatens to erode early development and healthy parent-child relationships.
This year's Compendium guide links the original framework of promotion, prevention, intervention, and treatment tiers of supports with Massachusetts's Association for Infant Mental Health (MassAIMH.org ) Competency Guidelines. MassAIMH purchased the license to the Michigan (MI-AIMH) competency system and has formed a Competency Task Force that helped develop this year's Compendium. This Compendium Includes each training coded by what level of Competency it addresses. Please see the User Guide for more information.
Please note that IECMH research and practice continue to evolve. Consequently, training opportunities included within the Guide are subject to change based upon the annual calendars, resources, and discretion of individual training entities. For the most updated training offerings, contact the entity directly using the information provided in the Guide.
