2022 CoE Conference (Workshop Session): Enhancing the IECMHC’s Toolbox to Talk to Children About Race

In the past two years, IECMHCs have had to expand their responsibilities to address the stressors of the COVID and racial pandemics. In particular, teachers and caregivers have had to have conversations with young children about the racial divide and race, which for some was something that they were unprepared or unsure of how to discuss with young children. Conversations about race should be a part of the IECMHC role and integrated under the foundational knowledge and culture competencies of the IECMHC. This presentation will incorporate an accumulation of lessons learned from serving as an IECMHC, teaching diversity classes, and reviewing current literature, to provide other IECMHCs with tools and resources on how to have developmentally appropriate conversations about race, with young children.

2022 CoE Conference (Workshop Session): Exploring the Impact of Racial Equity Support with AZ’s IECMHC Workforce

We will present findings from a small evaluation conducted by Dr. Flora Farago in partnership with Indigo Cultural Center. The goal of this study was to explore the impact of a racial equity professional development training and support effort with the IECMHC program in Arizona, known as Smart Support. This racial equity training and support effort was led by Dr. Eva Marie Shivers, spanned 4 years, and included consultants, supervisors and senior leadership. The findings have implications for designing ongoing PD efforts focused on racial equity for consultants as well as supervisors. In addition, we will share results that compare the impact of a more consistent, deeper focus on racial equity versus annual all-staff exposure to racial equity. Panelists’ shared perspectives will include research/evaluation; reflective supervision; mental health consultation.

2022 CoE Conference (Workshop Session): Going Where the Children Are: Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Across Sectors

This panel discussion will feature IECMHC programs serving professionals in childcare, pediatrics, obstetrics, and home visiting. Presenters will share experiences from one state’s cross-sector efforts to support providers serving majority low-income minority populations in their efforts to promote development, screen for/recognize mental health challenges, support/guide children/families, and connect families with services in the community, as needed. Panelists will discuss activities, principles, and tools used by IECMHCs, noting commonalities/differences between settings. Sector-specific special considerations and findings will be highlighted. Embedded in the discussion will be an understanding that the work of consultants and consultees across settings must recognize and address the impact of inequity on children and families of color, support resilience-building, and share hope with families who are disproportionately affected by systemic issues.
