Infant and Early Childhood Social and Emotional Wellbeing Conference 2013
30 Oct 2013 until 2 Nov 2013
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
National Convention Centre Canberra
Aims to close the gap between what we know about healthy child development and what we do to ensure that children thrive.
The real foundation of our nation’s future is today’s infants and young children (0 to 5 years) and the families and communities who nurture them. How these infants and young children develop will shape our country over the next century. Through advocating for improved policies for infants and young children, supporting parents as caregivers, developing and enhancing the skills of the people who work with infants and their families, and enhancing school readiness, we can foster and improve the social and emotional capabilities of infants and young children.
The Conference being held 30 October to 02 November 2013, will present a program which is participative, innovative, stimulating, thought-provoking and enriching. It aims to close the gap between what we know about healthy child development and what we do to ensure that children thrive. The program focuses on infant and early childhood social and emotional wellbeing and mental health and is a call to action!
It is with this vision in mind that the Australian Association for Infant Mental Health (AAIMHI) and the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY), in collaboration with the Infant Mental Health Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (IMHAANZ), invite you to participate in these vital discussions at the Infant and Early Childhood Social and Emotional Wellbeing Conference which will incorporate AAIMHI’s Annual Conference.
