We will develop tools for improving outcomes for children and families through Reflective Practice and relationship-based interventions. Through didactic and interactive activities, participants will practice and learn reflective and relationship-based interventions in order to strengthen the collaborative partnership with families and with the systems of care surrounding infants and young children. We will also learn how these practices can help reduce burn-out for providers.

Objectives:
  • Develop skills and methods for applying reflective and collaborative practices with children, families and with the surrounding providers.
  • Understand and practice optimal use of Self in relationship-based interventions.
  • Develop tools for the professional application of mindfulness, as well as your own reflective capacity.
  • Learn how the development of mindfulness and one’s reflective capacity supports clients and families, as well as reduces likelihood of provider burn-out
