18th World Congress for the World Association for Infant Mental Health
Early Relationships Matter: Advancing Practice, Policy and Research in Infant Mental Health
15-19 July 2023
Abstract submissions due to close in just two weeks
The Congress programme is now starting to take shape and with the keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lecturers already confirmed, we invite everyone working with infants, young children, their parents, carers, and families, striving to enhance their development and well-being, to share their thoughts, ideas and findings by submitting an abstract under either one of the scientific or clinical presentation streams.
The theme for the Congress is Early Relationships Matter: Advancing Practice, Policy and Research in Infant Mental Health and is intended to attract a wide range of participation from within the field of infant mental health practitioners, policy makers and researchers.
We are keen to hear about how work in the field is advancing clinical practice, public policy and research in infant mental health and how this is helping to grow our understanding of the importance of early relationships and why they matter.
We are also interested to know about the work being done to train and support the next generation of Infant Mental Health professionals, and how practitioners are advocating for infants, their health and wellbeing and that of those that care for them.
We eagerly anticipate contributions to help ensure the congress programme is stimulating, vibrant and inclusive. Don’t miss out on this opportunity, make sure your submissions are made by the deadline of Friday 14th October.
