by S. Doyle; S. Cohen; S. Chavez; S. Morrison

Oct 1, 2019

This report takes a deeper look at what is currently being done and what may be possible in the pediatric well-child visit (ages 0 – 3) and the pediatric primary care setting to promote positive outcomes around social and emotional development, the parent-child relationship, and parents' mental health as it is a critical mediator of the parentchild relationship. In the rest of this report, these outcomes are referred to collectively as "social and emotional development." This report describes the findings from CSSP's qualitative program analysis on the common practices used by innovative primary care sites.
