Primary Speaker name: 

Relationships impact other relationships. This simple statement offers a powerful tool for early intervention professionals who are seeking to handle the array of questions, surprises, and dilemmas that arise in a single day of working with very young children and their families. Creating relationships within which staff are supported to do their best thinking helps them to do the same with families. Parents who experience this type of relationship with staff are better equipped to build nurturing relationships with their very young children. This session will explore the foundations of relationship-based and reflective practice, explore the benefits and challenges of implementing reflective into your work and practice using the “Look, Listen and Learn” model approach in working with families.
