9:00: IECMH Consultation: Key Considerations from the Field – Brandy Fox

IECMH Consultation is a prevention-oriented approach to build the capacity of adult caregivers to support the social emotional development of very young children in their care.  Key components of IECMH consultation will be reviewed including approaches to consultation, staff qualifications, and evaluation/outcomes measurements.  Examples from a longstanding, statewide IECMH consultation project will be shared for illustration.

10:30: BREAK

10:45: The Impact of I/ECMH Consultation on Early Childhood System Professionals – Brandy Fox

Caring for and supporting the social emotional development of young children is not an easy task for every adult or early childhood professional.  IECMH consultation can reinforce the impact of nurturing relationships and high-quality early childhood experiences on the developing child.  It can also help to reduce suspension/expulsion practices and reduce early childhood professional’s stress levels. This session will discuss the impact of consultation on early childhood system professionals and include a myriad of ways in which this impact can be achieved.  Examples from a longstanding, statewide IECMH consultation project will be shared for illustration.

12:00 - 1:00: LUNCH

1:00:  Toddlers are From Jupiter (Why Treating Young Children Looks Different) – Michelle Curtin

A discussion about the nuance and challenges around treatment in young children and why treatment with prescription medications is the exception. This talk will focus on how developing brain leads to diagnostic and treatment differences for this special group of children. An overview of medication “facts, fallacies and foibles” will also be shared. 

2:00: BREAK

2:15: Building the case for an early childhood mental health consultation model in Indiana: Understanding the data and innovative practices in other states - Karen Ruprecht

What data exists that supports why early childhood mental health consultation is needed? This presentation will highlight early childhood and health related data that can help build the case for support for an early childhood mental health consultation model in Indiana. Participants will learn how other states implement and fund early childhood mental health consultation and discuss which aspects of these models show promise for Indiana.
