The Children’s Center Utah is now offering webinars focused on Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) topics. These webinars are offered at no cost to providers seeking to learn about IECMH. Most of the topics are broadly focused and appropriate for any providers who work with young children, including teachers, healthcare professionals, mental health clinicians, early interventionists, etc. If a topic has a narrow target audience (e.g., child care) it will be identified as part of the registration process. This website will be updated monthly with new webinar offerings so check back often for current information. Click here to receive regular webinar updates.

If you have any questions about the Teleconsultation Program, or if you are interested in learning more about creating a unique training package that is specific to your organization, please contact McCall Lyon, PsyD, at mlyon@tccutah.org.
