Facilitating Attuned Interactions Training
For Professionals who serve young children and families
The FAN approach serves as a framework for parent engagement and reflective practice in work with young children and families. The FAN focuses on parent and caregiver urgent concerns and helps practitioners tailor responses to match what parents and caregivers need most in the moment. The FAN also helps practitioners recognize how their own internal sense of regulation/dysregulation affects their ability to be fully present with a family. This training will offer strategies to help practitioners feel balanced in activating/high risk situations. The FAN provides an approach to reflective practice that can be used by staff and supervisors by using the ARC of Engagement to structure staff/supervision and promotes collaboration throughout.
