Thank you for your interest in hosting CoAIMH's CO Foundations Training!
Colorado Foundations of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health for Early Childhood Professionals and Partners (COFoundations), an 8-Module curriculum, was developed to strengthen the capacity of the early childhood workforce by providing a continuum of high-quality, consistent infant and early childhood mental health supports to children and families. The intended audience of the course is Early Intervention providers and service coordinators, early care and education providers, home visitors, public health nurses, and other early childhood providers. Colorado Foundations will be unique in its ability to promote a shared understanding and common language of infant and early childhood mental health principles to individuals across a broad array of disciplines. (However, it is not intended to replace advanced clinical knowledge and training that would prepare a professional to provide evidenced-based clinical treatment.) Further, the curriculum content supports the Competencies associated with the IMH Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health IMHE®, which facilitates the growth of necessary knowledge for those professionals seeking Endorsement.
As a Host Community, you will be supporting the early childhood workforce in your community by delivering this comprehensive curriculum! The first step is to complete the application below.
