About the Conference: The 2018 conference will continue to lead the field to improve skill development, practice and systems. There has been an explosion of research in areas of child development, child welfare, infant mental health, and family support. The conference has evolved from national to international participation

Join us for the 11th conference in Canada for early childhood development and family support. Our success reflects the powerful partnerships that we have formed across many communities: University of British Columbia, Infant Development Program, Aboriginal Infant Development Program, Sunny Hill Health Centre, BC Children’s Hospital, Family Support Institute and many more. These partnerships allow us to address diverse topics of evidence based practice and research.

Learning Objectives:

  • Empowering participants with cutting edge thoughts and practices
  • Broadening our understanding of family centered practices and support to enhance family wellbeing
  • Facilitating dialogue around diverse practices and beliefs
  • Applying evidence based framework to inform practice and policy development
  • Building partnerships across complex systems
  • Developing new skills and competencies
