Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-5) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships (PFR) workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships evidence-based program integrates theory, practice and intervention.
In this 4 half-day learner’s workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work whether in high-risk, special needs, child-care, or other early childhood fields.
Utilization of PFR strategies can improve:
Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to intervention and gain competence, and thus investment, in their caregiving.
