about this item

This guide outlines a problem-solving framework that blends relationship based practice, reflective skills, and concrete information for home visitors to use in everyday interactions with young children and families at risk. The framework helps them observe, listen, and ask questions to understand child behavior and development, sources of challenging behavior, stressful family situations and needs, and ways to manage reactions. It describes relationships and relationship based practice, reflective practice, and how they connect; how to understand and address common behavior problems in early childhood; specific behaviors, such as regulation, aggression, compliance, and anxiety; stressful family issues like parental mental illness and disability; and boundaries, self-care, and supervision.
