The Yale-Riggs Infant & Family Mental Health Training Program

The Yale-Riggs Infant Mental Health Training series is dedicated to the exploration of development, attachment, trauma and the interaction of these topics within the parent-child relationship and family system. Adapted to be presented over the course of two weekend long seminars, the course continues to translate evidence-based theory into practice, drawing on neurobiological, psychoanalytic, attachment, adult mental health and family systems ideas, and to make the training relevant to the practitioners’ particular work contexts. The teaching emphasizes discussion and reflection as integral to the learning process. Limited enrollment allows attendees to actively participate in the exploration of the ideas presented at each meeting.
