Symposium A

Maternal Substance Use: Impact on Mothers, Infants, and the Caregiving Relationship

Expanding Horizons for the Early Years 2019 Pre-Institute, April 10, 2019

While we know that prenatal exposure to opioids and other substances undoubtedly has an influence on child outcomes, practitioners often have less clarity about how to support affected infants and their mothers, and promote a secure parent-child relationship environment. This symposium will explore key elements for awareness and sensitivity required to support families through this challenge and promote best possible outcomes for both mother and baby.
