AAIMHI 2017 National Conference: November 23 – 26, University of Melbourne
To facilitate the travel of our interstate delegates, the Conference will open on Thursday evening, and finish at 1pm on Sunday.
The Conference 2017 Organising Committee invites you to ‘save the date’. We hope you will join us in Melbourne to celebrate our important work with infants and those who care for them.
The conference program is designed to challenge, deepen and widen our clinical thinking, as together we explore the complex systems that influence and govern our lives and our work. We hope to focus on matters that threaten to derail our thinking, that perplex and distress us and the families we work with.
Themes will include:
1. The infant in families Assisted by Reproductive Technology
2. The infant needing asylum across cultural, religious and racial divides
3. The infant’s experience of family violence
4. The infant within the Child Protection System
5. The observed infant and clinical supervision
Invited speakers will present clinical material reflections, as together we explore implications for our own practice and for our collective voice as infant mental health practitioners across Australia.
There will be a series of dedicated poster workshops and the committee invites you to begin abstract-dreaming for your poster presentations.
