There is need to focus on the development of infants within the foster care system. Understanding Infant Mental Health, which is a relatively new, is important to support the appropriate development of infants within the child welfare system. This session addresses a wide range of areas including the importance of attachment, building relationships, responsive caregiving as well as challenges or needs in infants that can disrupt these processes.
