Enhancing Early Social-Emotional Functioning in Infants and Toddlers Using a Relationship-Based Infant Mental Health Approach
The team has developed a curriculum designed to improve early childhood social-emotional outcomes among children participating in Early Head Start programs. To evaluate the curriculum, home visitors from two sites were randomly selected to receive training in the curriculum or provide their regular services, and outcomes from parents and children from these groups are being compared.
