The Austen Riggs Center Announces Yale-Riggs Infant & Family Mental Health Training Program
Stockbridge, MA – October 20, 2016 – The Erikson Institute of the Austen Riggs Center is pleased to announce, in collaboration with the Yale Child Study Center, the Yale-Riggs Infant & Family Mental Health Training Program.
The program of four weekend-long modules (two are offered each year) is dedicated to the exploration of development, attachment, trauma, and the interaction of these topics within the parent-child relationship and family system. Evidence-based theory is translated into practice, drawing on neurobiological, psychoanalytic, attachment, and adult mental health and family systems concepts, and made relevant to the participating practitioners’ work contexts.
Module 3 will be offered November 4-5, 2016 at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, MA.
