Children's Well-Being: Health and Mental Health Initiatives (Workshop 155)
Without proper training, signs that a baby's emotional needs are not being met often can be misinterpreted as "acting out" rather than as a reaction to being removed from their primary caretaker and experiencing multiple placements. Workshop panelists present an overview of early intervention services available to assist young children in foster care and their caretakers, including examples of programs developed in their jurisdictions to address the medical and mental health needs of children. The session identifies the questions every judge and lawyer should ask about infants and toddlers, such as: physical health, development, mental health, educational/childcare setting, and placement.
