Two Las Cumbres staff will be attending and presenting at the annual Zero to Three (ZTT) Conference in New Orleans this early December. The conference theme this year is Building Powerful Connections. The ZTT conference each year brings together colleagues and experts in the field of child development to share practical tools, research, and resources to ensure that babies and toddlers benefit fully from early connections critical to their well-being.

Agency Child and Family Services Director Stacey Frymier (pictured below) and Jodi Rodgers, Behavioral Health Clinical Supervisor, (pictured, right), will examine ways that Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health clinical practitioners can most effectively work with parents or caregivers experiencing unresolved current or historical trauma, interpersonal violence, homelessness, incarceration and other high risk factors that put their family's safety and stability at risk.

Their presentation, Optimizing Parental Motivation, Regulation, and Responsiveness: Integration of Dialectical Behavior Therapy within Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Clinical Practice, will introduce participants to basic components to support parental regulation, enhance motivation and participation in treatment, and how to respond more effectively to their child's needs, even when they are experiencing stress. 

Las Cumbres offers a continuum of closely integrated programs for infants and toddlers through early intervention and early childhood mental health programs as well as family support services and low birth weight prevention advocacy on site and in the parent or caregivers' homes. Services help children experiencing delays to develop the skills they are lacking, thereby enhancing their readiness for school, their ability to reach other developmental milestones, and capacity to gain other necessary skills later in life. 

Zero to Three is a member-based organization founded in 1977 by leading researchers and clinicians in diverse disciplines that reaches millions of parents, professionals and policymakers each year. To learn more about the organization, click here
