Early Childhood Providers, Systems Leaders, Communities: Timely! Please Answer Early Relational Health Questionnaire

Early Relational Health (ERH) â€“ is an emerging framework that elevates the primacy of relational experiences as foundational for life-long health, learning and social-emotional wellbeing and has relevance across the child and family-focused fields of pediatrics, public health, infant-child mental health, early learning, child welfare and early childhood community systems. 

Please take 10 minutes to answer this questionnaire, offered by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP). CSSP's ERH Initiative is reaching out to early childhood providers, systems leaders and communities to get a better sense of current ERH-related activities, best practices, and interests.  This work will generate a CSSP brief that will describe the implementation and readiness landscape, upon which future activities can be built.  Please share your thoughts about ERH by completing this short survey, linked here, by January 22nd. The attachment work so many of us are doing fits extremely well with the Early Relational Health perspective.

Stephanie Doyle and Dr. David Willis of CSSP are spearheading this initiative.  You can access an incredible pdf of PowerPoint slides at
