This course will look at how three primary relationships (parent-child, parent-professional, and professional-professional) in Early Intervention work together to promote and enhance the positive development of children within the context of their families. Participants will have opportunities to reflect on how the use of partnership principles and interaction skills support their relationships with families and positively affect their practice. They will explore strategies to assist them in collaborating with families to identifying family strengths and resources and to help build family capacity. They will have opportunities to reflect on the balance of power between families and professionals and identify practices that serve to empower families.
