Workshop: Principles of Early Childhood Mental Health
The prevalence of significant emotional and behavioral challenges in young children ranges from 4-10 percent. Early Childhood Mental Health is an emerging new discipline designed to address these challenges and to support the healthy social/emotional development of all young children in early care settings.
Instructors Dr. Tom Davis and Sherry Shamblin, PCC-S, will offer a summer survey course on the principles of early childhood mental health through Ohio University's Counseling Department.
This course is designed to provide students an overview of basic principles and practices associated with Early Childhood Mental Health, including: identification of typical developmental milestones in children 0-5, assessment tools and practices for preschool children, and practical strategies for working with young children and their caregivers. Observations, videos, case studies, guided practice, and web-based learning will be utilized to help students gain a basic understanding of these issues, which will enable continued growth and development.
Registration is through Ohio University.
Dates: June 25-29
If you have questions, please contact Sherry Shamblin, PCC-S.
