Social and Emotional Well-Being: The Foundation for School Readiness
Social and Emotional Well-Being: The Foundation for School Readiness describes the evolution of infant mental health as a critical field of study and practice in California, beginning with the Infant Mental Health Workgroup Recommendations in 1996, to the Infant Mental Health Development Project, to the Infant-Family Mental Health Initiative and, finally, to the Infant, Preschool and Family Mental Health Initiative in 2004.
Although infant mental health work continues to expand, the message remains consistent: focusing on early relationships between young children and their caregivers has lifelong implications for achieving healthy social and emotional well-being.
