Beginning July 2022
Brazelton Touchpoints is an evidence-based approach to building strong family-child relationships from before birth throughout childhood. Providers who implement Touchpoints in their practice partner with families to lay the vital foundation for children’s early learning and healthy development.
Touchpoints is a developmental-relational approach that applies a deep understanding of children’s behavior as the primary family-engagement strategy by anticipating known periods of increased stress in family functioning that are associated with developmental processes. Touchpoints builds strong, trusting partnerships between families and providers that can then effectively manage concerns that might arise about a child. Building relationships with families of children with special medical and developmental needs presents its own unique challenges.
This training will explore how Brazelton Touchpoints can help providers create and nurture collaborative partnerships with families, including families affected by children’s special needs. If you work with young children and families, this professional development offering will introduce you to concrete strengths-based and relational strategies you can use to support yourself and the families with whom you work.
This course consists of six modules. Each module will be facilitated in a live, interactive webinar format. The course is followed by six monthly one-hour virtual reflective practice sessions. Attendance is required at live sessions. Sessions are not recorded.
