Lessons from the Field 2018 was held on October 29, 2018 at the Bunker Hills Event Center in Coon Rapids, MN and broadcasted to 12 sites across Minnesota. This Lessons from the Field event was held In collaboration with the Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health – Infant and Early Childhood (MACMH-IEC) and the University of Minnesota’s Center for Early Education and Development (CEED) as part of the two-day “Minnesota Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Multidisciplinary Conference".


Our Extension CYFC Scholar in Residence, Dr. Katie Lingras from the UMN Department of Psychiatry, served as the keynote speaker. The title of her keynote address was: Responding to Challenging Behaviors: Considering Two-Generation and Infant Mental Health Frameworks in Early Care.

A multi-disciplinary panel of service providers followed her presentation in order to provide practice strategies in varied settings and systems.
