Home Visiting Community
Toxic Stress and Its Impact on Families and Home Visitors
In trauma-informed care, we pay attention to the stress continuum and the level of stress that children and families are experiencing. This training discusses how long-term exposure to stress affects the brain, children’s development, and implications for parenting. We also discuss the effects on home visitors’ health as well! Originally presented on March 26, 2015.
Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) was launched in fall 2009 to conduct a thorough and transparent review of the home visiting research literature and provide an assessment of the evidence of effectiveness for home visiting program models that serve families with pregnant women and children from birth to age 5. This executive summary provides an overview of the HomVEE review process, a summary of the review results, and a link to the HomVEE website for more detailed information. The updated report includes 40 home visiting models. Read the Executive Summary
