“The professors in the IMH program worked in the field and provided real life examples to help connect our course work to the professional practice we would experience out in the field.”
Emily works as a Child Development Worker at Mothercraft, in their Early Intervention Department, Breaking the Cycle. After completing a placement at Breaking the Cycle in the final semester of the IMH program, she was hired. Emily uses her knowledge gained from the IMH program on a daily basis when providing one on one interventions with young children or facilitating mother-child groups. Emily found that the program’s focus on mental health and parent child relationships starting in infancy was extremely relevant to the field and her every day work.
