Topic Description / Additional Information

STUDENTS MUST CONTACT THE COURSE INSTRUCTOR, JULIE RIBAUDO AND SUBMIT A CLOSED COURSE PETITION FOR POSSIBLE ENTRY TO THIS CLASS.

This course will examine practice theories and techniques for observing and understanding the behavior and interactions of infants and young children and their caregivers. This course will emphasize evidence-based tools for observation that address diverse groups of infants and young children in their primary environments (e.g., family and alternative caregiving contexts). Special attention will be given to issues of diversity as it relates to understanding the nature of interactions. The course will be divided into classroom activities as well as involvement in an evidence-informed intervention project through the department of Psychiatry. Students will be part of the “Child Team” working with an individual child on a weekly basis to assist the child with separation and reunions while their parent attends a parenting support and intervention group. The course will contribute to post-graduate readiness for endorsement in infant-family practice.
