Pre- and postpartum depression affects up to 20% of parents (mothers AND fathers) in the US. The longer the duration, the more it can disrupt parent/child relationships.

2. Promoting Parent-Child Relationships: The Key to Optimal Developmental Outcomes for BOTH Child and Parent

The quality of the parent-child relationship has been shown to be the single most reliable predictor of children’s developmental outcomes.  Working with young children and their parents is relationship-based work, which establishes the professional’s role as facilitating the parent-child relationship through intentional use of the practitioner-parent relationship and strengths-based strategies that build developmental parenting skills and resilience.  Based on Developmental Parenting, Powerful Interactions, and other infant mental health resources, this training explores theory and strategies for promoting both children’s and parents’ development through relationships with us and each other.  Material will include our own need for reflection as well as instruments for assessing the quality of parent-child and teacher-child relationships.
