Skills Box Session

Working With Infants & Their Families Through a Culturally Respectful Lens

As culture informs identity, relationship skills and nurturing practices, Barbara will explore how we can weave sensitivity to family culture into our infant mental health practice. During this skill building talk, Barbara will demonstrate how we can use a sense of wonder to both honour and understand a family’s personal cultural story. Attendees will exit with story starters, designed to initiate culturally curious questions from a place of respect and sensitivity.
