Infant-Preschooler Mental Health Certificates


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

CSPP offers two training tracks which overlap in coursework and lead to three certificates that provide an in-depth, systematic and integrated curriculum in infant and preschooler mental health. The courses are offered both as post-graduate certificate coursework (IPM courses) and as elective coursework for degree-seeking graduate clinical students in the CSPP and other and CFT programs on several Alliant campuses (PSY8500 courses). Degree seeking students should consult with their advisor/program director when planning to use IPMH courses (PSY8500) as electives for their degree.

Supplemental courses are also available, including Diversity Strategies in IPMH Practice, IPMH & Child Protective Services, Early Intervention in Perinatal Mood Disorders, and Reflective facilitation groups. Availability of courses in specific campus locations is dependent upon sufficient course enrollments. Several courses are available in a distance learning modality or a weekend format.
