The presenters will facilitate and share experiences of working with incarcerated fathers to highlight the importance of working with families affected by imprisonment and share findings of a pilot attachment-based intervention used in UK prison. The session will be interactive and aims to reflect on the audiences’ experience of working with fathers.
D15—The Universal Needs of Infants and Their Caregivers: Viewing Our Work Through a World Perspective

IIG—The Global Context of Family Support for Infant-Toddler Development: Universal and Culturally Specific Intervention Features
This intensive will demonstrate family support initiatives in different international contexts. Although the US is often seen as a leader in evidence-based practices to promote positive development in infants and toddlers, family support is a global concern, and there are lessons that can be learned from approaches taken in other countries.
