Facilitating Attuned Interactions Training

For Professional Teams 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.

SCIMHA encourages staff or team participation in FAN Training to maximize the impact made within your organization or agency.  Priority will be given to teams committed to integrating the FAN model into their work.  If you are interested in the FAN Training, please click on the link below and fill out the brief form.
