Promoting First Relationships® Workshop - December 4 & 5, 2018


2-day Learner Workshop - Seattle - Watertown Hotel

Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-3) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships evidence-based program integrates theory, practice and intervention. Trainers use various learning approaches including case studies, role-playing, and reflective dialogue. These approaches allow participants to apply the framework directly to issues they face in their environment.

In this 2-day learner's workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work whether in high-risk, special needs, child-care, or other early childhood fields. The strategy can be used one-on-one with parents and also with child care providers and early childhood teachers responsible for group care. Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to intervention and gain competence, and thus investment, in their caregiving.

Your fee covers tuition, all curriculum materials including the Promoting First Relationships manual, video and a packet of reproducible parent handouts.

What participants are saying . . . 

"I loved the video examples which really helped illustrate the principles."

"Straightforward and doable, lots of real life examples and opportunity to reflect in groups."

"I liked how the case studies cemented the concepts."

"I particularly liked the group discussions, latest research information and the handouts."

This workshop presents a unique opportunity to become reliable in the NCAST Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Feeding Assessment Scale, learning from the source and transforming the way in which you view the parent/caregiver-child interaction.

Tuition & fees includes an administration manual, assessment scale pad, reliability testing & certificate.

  • Public Health Nurses
  • Researchers
  • Social Workers
  • Infant Mental Health Specialists
  • Occupational & Physical Therapists
  • Early Intervention Workers

"I will never look at parent-child interaction in the same way again. This training has taught me to leave my biases at the door and focus on the positive. I am forever changed." RN, New York City

"Dr. Kathryn Barnard told our instructor group that people who study the Parent-Child Interaction scales never see a parent-child pair in quite the same way again. My experience supports this. You develop a new perspective and enhanced insight into everyday interactions and their consequent impact on children's developmental potential." Early Parenting Consultant & Instructor

Learning the scale may meet some of the screening, assessment, and observation competencies for certification in infant mental health. *If you do not attain reliability during the workshop, private arrangements can be made to attain reliability with a second or third attempt if needed. Attaining reliability cannot be guaranteed.
