Conversations With NEAR@Home Facilitators
Watch as NEAR@Home facilitators discuss best practices and aim to empower home visitors through meaningful conversations.
Therapeutic Use of Self
In this video, NEAR@Home facilitators explore what we mean when we talk about “use of self” or “therapeutic use of self.” Home visiting is a relationship-based practice and how we connect with families is more important than what we “do.”
The Power of Listening
In this video, NEAR@Home facilitators explore the meaning and impact of listening. Listening is a powerful strategy for engaging with parents/caregivers. Spacious listening is a skill we can develop to counter the pressure of thinking we need to “do something” or to “fix it.”
In this video, NEAR@Home facilitators explore the nuances of the term “parallel process.” How we are within each relationship, past and present, and how that influences other relationships.
