Perspectives in Infant Mental Health (formerly, The Signal) is a professional publication of the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH). It provides a platform for WAIMH members, WAIMH Affiliate members, and allied infant mental health colleagues to share scientific articles, clinical case studies, articles describing innovative thinking, intervention approaches, research studies, and book reviews, to name a few. It also serves as a nexus for the establishment of a communication network, and informs members of upcoming events and conferences.

In the spirit of sharing new perspectives, we welcome your manuscripts. Manuscripts are accepted throughout the year. Articles are reviewed by the Editors, all of whom are committed to identifying authors from around the world and assisting them to best prepare their papers for publication.
