This conference:

• Brings together multidisciplinary professionals working with very young children, their families and caregivers.
• Promotes Infant Mental Health principles to inform practice across disciplines, including:
– Work with young children must always occur within the context of their primary relationships
– The need for reflection in relationship-based work
– Development informs the work
– Infants and very young children and their families have unique relational and developmental needs which require practitioners to have a unique set of skills
• Explores how research informs practice and practice informs research


This conference is designed to meet CEH (Continuing Education Hours) credits for many disciplines: psychology, social work, education, education administration, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and behavioral health and therapy. CEH certificates will be available to document participation. This event is also DEVELOP approved.

For those interested in purchasing the conference recordings, up to 26 CEHs are expected to be approved by the following boards:

MN Board of Behavioral Health & Therapy
MN Board of Marriage & Family Therapy
MN Board of Psychology
MN Board of Social Work

The following boards do not require pre-approved CEHs. CEHs should be approved upon independent submission to your board:
+ MN Board of Education
+ MN Nursing Board
+ ND Board of Social Work

Professionals in other related disciplines, as well as those working outside of Minnesota, can submit CEH certificates to their corresponding boards for independent approval.

Actual CEH amounts will be dependent upon your specific licensure board and attendance.
