Professional Development

Establishing Behaviors for Coaching Home Visitors: A Modified e-Delphi Study with HV Partners

What makes coaching effective? Those engaged in supporting the development of home visitor skills and abilities through coaching will find this poster session about a new study of interest. Start Early’s Community of Practice (CoP) for Home Visitor Professional Development is conducting an eDelphi study to conceptualize the behaviors and beliefs that comprise current approaches for coaching home visitors. A preliminary survey of coaching behaviors and knowledge areas has been constructed by the CoP, based on literature reviews and discussions of coaching experiences. This survey is the basis for the eDelphi study which will engage home visiting stakeholders (e.g., home visitors, supervisors, program directors, and researchers) in an iterative process for conceptualizing coaching. This poster will present the preliminary survey as well as an overview of the study’s methods, progress, and expected benefits.
