Conversations and Controversies in Infant Mental Health


This yearlong course combines guest lectures and small group discussions to explore foundational topics in infant mental health and the ongoing impact of historical trauma and social, educational, and health disparities on a baby’s development, relational health and wellbeing. Concepts of vulnerability and resilience, stress, trauma, emotional regulation and attachment will frame discussions of such questions as: How does a reproductive justice framework help us better meet the needs of vulnerable families in the perinatal period? What are the strengths and limitations of attachment theory?  The course includes examination of the complex intersectional effects of social and political power hierarchies, race, culture, and ethnicity on human development.
