“Keeping the Infant in Mind”

An informative and interactive day for professionals working with infants and young children.

We are delighted to announce a national Infant-focused Training Day will be held in Auckland on June 7. The focus of the day will be on innovative and evidenced approaches in New Zealand in infant mental health and infant-focused services. This will include presentations on infant vulnerability and risk, the impact of alcohol and methamphetamine on infant neurodevelopment. There will be a Q&A segment with the panel of presenters and an opportunity to reflect with your colleagues on implications for your work.
