Key Note: Dr. Connie Lillas Ph.D., MFT, RN, is a National Graduate Zero to Three Leadership Fellow and an infant mental health and early intervention specialist with a background in maternal-child nursing, family systems, and developmental psychoanalysis. She is the co-author of A Neurorelational Framework for Interdisciplinary Practice. The book responds to the critical need for a more cohesive system of care for our youngest patients. Most practitioners are trained to view only their domain as defining a parent-child’s needs. This book provides a conceptual framework for interdisciplinary collaboration in order to treat the whole child optimally in the context of his or her relationships.
Please plan to join the Illinois Association for Infant Mental Health at the Annual Conference and welcome Dr. Lillas for a day of training and reflection around the complexity of our work.
The conference will be held at the UIC Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago 60068 in cooperation with the UIC Children’s Center.
