Research continues to highlight the impact of parental depression on the developmental outcomes of young children. As home visitors and Family Service Providers, we often encounter depression in mothers and fathers, but may not feel competent and confident to address these concerns. In this workshop, participants will learn about free resources to support their work with families, including handouts for families, screening tools, videos and referral options. Presentation will include evidence-based strategies and tools for recognizing, screening and responding to parental depression with the goal of improving family functioning and improving developmental outcomes for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
