Stockbridge, MA – October 20, 2016 – The Erikson Institute of the Austen Riggs Center is pleased to announce, in collaboration with the Yale Child Study Center, the Yale-Riggs Infant & Family Mental Health Training Program

The program of four weekend-long modules (two are offered each year) is dedicated to the exploration of development, attachment, trauma, and the interaction of these topics within the parent-child relationship and family system.
