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!

Reflecting In Action: Responding to Difficult Interactions Between Parents and Young Children During Home Visits

Many home visitors are challenged by difficult interactions between parents and young children in the home. Parents scream, children may bite, home visitors may feel like getting a new job. Michele Fallon and Carol Siegel help home visitors prepare for and mange those difficult interactions: they discuss strategies to help facilitate parent’s understanding of their children’s behaviors as well as strategies to help home visitors respond to difficult interactions in the moment.

Looking Back, Looking Forward

In 2012, the Minnesota Coalition for Targeted Home Visiting focused much of its efforts on developing a comprehensive statewide training for home visiting professionals. Noting the apparent lack of training opportunities for home visitors in general, and specifically addressing trauma informed practice, Coalition sponsored an integrated learning series. The training examined the role of trauma and its implication for home visiting through two large group trainings, and two small reflective training sessions led by infant-toddler mental health professionals in 10 locations around the state. Additionally, a partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health in 2012 has opened up training opportunities to other agency home visitors for the future. Read the rest of this entry →
