ODMHSAS Training Institute is pleased to announce the next session of Foundations of Infant Mental Health - Parts 1 and 2. This training is appropriate for all levels of staff. We are excited to offer an updated and expanded version of our popular introduction to infant mental health. This will be the last session for this round of training. We will offer this training again in Spring 2022. This training serves as a prerequisite for the IMH Assessment Training Series and for DC:0-5. Watch your email for registration information coming soon for the Infant Mental Health Assessment Training Series, October - December 2021. The goal of this training is to build a foundation of knowledge in the rapidly growing area of infant mental health. Participants will learn the unique mental health needs of infants and young children birth through age five and how assessment and treatment needs change in this population. Participants will identify key basics of development and attachment and will explore how early experiences are related to later health and well-being through lecture, discussion and activities. One of the primary goals of the training will be putting these pieces together to discuss the current recommendations in infant mental health assessments.

Children's Institute: A Foundation Training In Reflective Supervision - Reflective supervision, reflective consultation, and reflective practice are terms used for the approaches now considered best practices for providers, supervisors, and agencies where stress, secondary trauma, high turnover, and service quality are significant concerns. This interactive virtual training is designed for supervisors in the infant-family early childhood field, including mental health, early childhood education, home visitation, and other child and family services.
Reflective Supervision - In this session participants will explore the components of reflective supervision, observe and practice key skills associated with reflective practice and explore strategies for providing responsive versus reactive responses in the supervisory relationship.
Supervisor Training: Reflective Group Supervision [Online] - In these challenging times providing clinical supervision and support to staff is complex, strenuous and essential. The typical model of coming to the supervisor and getting advice on what to do with clients does not adequately meet staff members' needs. Supervisors need a different model that attends, first, to the staff members themselves and then their experiences with clients. They also need to understand clients' experiences as embedded in the larger systems that significantly impact them including race, class, language, and immigration status. This online training is for supervisors who would like to expand their supervision skills to be able to meet these multifaceted needs.
Clinical Supervision: Essentials of Reflective Supervision - Supervision plays an important role to the supervisee in becoming a trained and competent practitioner. To be successful, it takes a great deal of flexibility and a clear understanding about how to guide the supervisee through this process. In this course, you will be provided with an overview of reflective supervision, as well as guidance about how to promote reflective practice in supervision.
