Monica Oxford, Interim Director


The mission of the Barnard Center for Infant Mental Health and Development (Barnard Center) is to promote interdisciplinary research, education and practice and advance policy related to the social and emotional development of all children during the first five years. This work is framed within a universal awareness of the importance of these early years and is aimed at supporting relationships between caregivers and young children.

Training focuses on supporting trainees to evaluate and address the infant mental health needs of vulnerable families. Research projects include longitudinal, natural history observational studies of infants and their families, controlled trials testing the efficacy of interventions, longitudinal studies to measure the long-term impact of interventions, as well as program evaluation in the arena of early learning.
