In this 4-day skill-driven course, home visitors and other family practitioners acquire new tools for motivating and communicating with parents of infants and young children, aimed at supporting parents to form secure attachment relationships, be involved in their child’s development, strengthen the foundations of their family and solve their problems. Concrete skills are gained through video demonstrations followed by hands-on practice with commonly encountered parenting and family scenarios.

The following topics are covered:

  • Effects of Neglect and Childhood Trauma on Development and Adult Functioning
  • Parent-Child Attachments: Ingredients and End Products
  • Infant Cues and Signals
  • CHEEERS: A Parent-Child Interaction-Relationship Assessment Tool
  • Early Child Development: New Perspectives
  • The Strength-Based Solution-Focused Approach: Examination of the Practitioner’s Beliefs and Interactions
  • 7 Strength-Based, Solution-Focused Strategies for Motivating Nurturing Parenting and Strengthening Parents/Families
