A Morning in Clinic
Dunn, Dena M.; Talmi, Ayelet
Zero to Three (J), v32 n6 p4-8 Jul 2012
Families with young children attend well-child visits in pediatric primary care settings frequently during the first 3 years of life and receive information and answers to questions about their young child's health and development. Integrating an infant-early childhood mental health and child development specialist into a pediatric primary care setting provides additional supports and resources to families with young children. This article describes the families seen by a developmental specialist working in an urban primary care clinic serving high-risk, low-income families during one morning in clinic. The diversity and complexity of infant mental health and developmental issues brought by families to their pediatric providers and the value of seeking reflective supervision for integrated clinicians are highlighted.
