Infusing Early Childhood Mental Health into Early Intervention Services
Grabert, John C.
Zero to Three (J), v29 n6 p13-17 Jul 2009
This article describes the process of enhancing early childhood mental health awareness and skills in non-mental health staff. The author describes a pilot training model, conducted the U.S. Army's Early Intervention Services, that involved: (a) increasing early childhood mental health knowledge through reflective readings, (b) enhancing communication skills or reflective listening, and (c) providing ongoing support for the development of skills through reflective supervision. The author uses vignettes to highlight the resulting change in practices and to underscore the unique opportunity early intervention programs have in attending to mental health.
