This training aims to enhance an Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) professional’s ability to use a social justice lens–based in critical consciousness, empowerment, and self-accountability–to inform anti-racist interventions. Together we will explore how each of our social identities impact our roles as professionals, encouraging this through deep reflection on systems of oppression and identity of the self. 

Participants will be guided through informative and experiential activities allowing them to deepen their understanding of how to partner with communities, and with families with young children using an equitable, culturally relevant, socially just approach that is transformative at the micro and macro levels. Discussion will include what it means to show up and to build a community around anti-racist practice.

During these sessions, attendees will:

  • Be able to identify the importance of Social Justice in IECMH work
  • Acknowledge how systematic oppression and white supremacy has played a pivotal role in the development of IECMH practices and how that impacts the work 
  • Be able to implement anti-oppressive practices within their respective communities
  • Use introspection in developing anti-racist practices that can be utilized within the field
  • Identify how white supremacy shows up in clinical practices and define a social justice informed IECMH approach
