UK IMH Competency Framework

from AiMH UK

The UK Infant Mental Health Competency Framework (IMHCF): from pregnancy to age 2 years aims to inspire perinatal and infant mental health (IMH) practitioners by identifying the knowledge and skills needed to be effective in IMH practice.The competencies are fundamental to practice and are in three progressive levels.

At Level 1 you need to understand the knowledge base and Level 2 requires you to apply the knowledge into your work (putting it into practice). Level 3 is applicable to practitioners who manage and supervise.

What do the competencies include?

As an IMH practitioner you will need to know what the competencies are. They are presented in seven domains and each domain includes relevant topics. The domains are areas you are already working in on a daily basis. Take a look below:

Domain 1: Relationship Based Practice

Domain 2: Normal and Atypical Development

Domain 3: Factors that Influence Caregiving

Domain 4: Assessment of Caregiving

Domain 5: Supporting Caregiving

Domain 6: Reflective Practice and Supervision

Domain 7: Working within Relevant and Professional Framework
