Description

• The FAN (Facilitating Attuned Interactions) Approach serves as a framework for parent engagement and reflective practice in home visiting.

• The FAN focuses on parents' urgent concerns and helps practitioners tailor responses to match what parents 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.

• The FAN offers strategies to help practitioners feel balanced in activating, urgent, and difficult situations.

• The FAN provides an approach to reflective practice that can be used by practitioners and supervisors. The ARC of Engagement provides structure for home visits/supervision and promotes collaboration throughout.
