Until Infant Mental Health Online (IMHOL) there was no standardised training in infant mental health in the United Kingdom for front line professionals who work with babies/children and their families. Infant Mental Health Online (IMHOL) was designed to address this need.
The PIIOS is a validated, easy to use tool, designed with the front line practitioner in mind to assess parent-infant interaction between 2 - 7 months. The PIIOS has been developed to meet the need for a short, easily accessible screening tool to assess parental attunement for professionals such as health visitors, midwives, nursery nurses, social workers and psychologists.
