Infant Mental Health Journal

The Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health (MI-AIMH) is the copyright holder and owner of the Infant Mental Health Journal (IMHJ). MI-AIMH contracts with the Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health to manage business tasks related to the IMHJ, including: Communication with Wiley (publisher); communicating with Editor in Chief; coordinating selection of new Editor (as needed); billing, invoicing, management of subscriptions, etc. The responsibility to represent MI-AIMH in these tasks does not supplant the decision-making responsibility or rights of MI-AIMH with regards to the IMHJ.

Through a cooperative agreement between MI-AIMH, the Alliance, and the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH), the IMHJ is known as the Official Journal of WAIMH.

Issued bimonthly, the IMHJ publishes peer-reviewed research articles, literature reviews, program descriptions/evaluations, clinical studies, and book reviews that focus on infant social-emotional development, neurobiological correlates of emotional development, caregiver-infant interactions, contextual and cultural influences on infant and family development, and all conditions that place infants and/or their families at risk for less than optimal development. The journal is dedicated to interdisciplinary approaches, including diverse theoretical views, to the optimal development of infants and their families. Special emphasis is given to high risk infants and very young children and their families. Editor-in-Chief: Paul Spicer, PhD. E-mail: paul.spicer@ou.edu.
