Workshop description

This workshop will build beginning skills in using the FAN (Facilitating Attuned Interactions) as a practical navigational tool to operationalize attunement in helping relationships with families and young children. Using the five core processes of the FAN, participants will learn to read cues and move flexibly on the FAN – matching your interactions to the family/child relationship. Participants will also develop their skills in Mindful Self-Regulation, helping them to stay calm and think clearly in challenging interactions. Participants will practice using the ARC of Engagement to structure sessions to promote emotional safety and collaboration.
