Course Overview

Master of Infant Mental Health

Designed to equip students with evidence-based knowledge and skills to work with infants, children and young families.

The course has an interdisciplinary focus across the levels of promotion, prevention, intervention and policy in the field of Infant Mental Health (IMH).

IMH specialists seek to further the healthy social and emotional development of infants and young children by preventing and treating mental health problems in the context of their caregiving relationships. IMH is fundamentally a relationship-focused approach, and reflective practice and reflective supervision are seen as critical components.

This course aligns with international standards and competencies in Infant Mental Health and is the first of its kind in WA.
