Abstract

Awareness of infant mental health problems is crucial in promoting children’s emotional development. Government policies emphasize the importance of early identification of such problems for interventions to optimize future development. Health Visitors / primary health nurses have unique access to developing infants and their families, and are well placed to identify children who they believe could be helped by specialist services. In this book, Dr Eduardo Szaniecki covers aspects of conceptualization, classification, and methods available to assess infant mental health difficulties, offering an analysis of infant mental health as seen from the perspective of primary health care workers (health visitors). The book is a study, approached qualitatively, to describe how they perceive, define, and identify potential infant mental health problems, leading to recommendations to the infant mental health field and primary care practice.
