Infant Mental Health Practice and Education: Perspectives from South Africa
Dr. Anusha Lachman
The legacy of colonial and Apartheid-based education in South Africa manifests in the quality of basic education and inequality that affects tertiary education. The challenge of teaching in an ethnically and culturally diverse classroom cannot be underestimated. This session will use Infant (IMH) and child mental health (CMH) as examples to demonstrate the challenges of teaching, training and research in a field that needs to reflect multicultural sensitivities in a Lower Middle Income Country (LMIC) setting.
