This booster session offers participants a refresher to the Touchpoints approach focused on the Developmental and Relational Frameworks. Understanding predictable periods of disorganization as a model of development is stressed. Guiding Principles will be previewed for practice throughout the remainder of the training program. The session also references the Touchpoints Parent Provider Assumptions although, at this early stage of the training, greater emphasis is directed toward the core concepts of the Developmental and Relational Frameworks, and Anticipatory Guidance. The session is intended to help participants recognize that the Touchpoints approach is unique and purposeful and that applying these techniques will make a powerful difference in the relationship between providers and families, for the betterment of the child’s development.
