The intention in writing an infant mental health workshop curriculum for California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is to increase overall awareness and knowledge about infant mental health among social work graduates. Focusing on the infant-caregiver relationship as the primary influence on an infant's socio-emotional health, this curriculum will interchangeably use the term infant mental health when referring to an infant's socio-emotional health. Infancy is explained as the first 3 years of a child's life.
The exploration of the infant brain associated with attachment and infant mental health is just beginning to receive scientific attention. Increased awareness about infant mental health among social work graduates will provide a foundation for those graduates interested in providing seriously needed mental health services to infants. An extensive literature review was completed to insure the inclusion of prevalent information.
