Brazelton Touchpoints is a practical approach for building strong family-child relationships from birth through the earliest years, laying the foundation for children's early learning and healthy development. Research and experience have shown that simply 'telling' parents what to do is not effective. Touchpoints is a model of practice that enables providers (including caregivers and educators) to establish collaborative and encouraging relationshps with families based on a shared interest in the healthy development of their child. Touchpoints provides for transformation through: 1) changing practice from prescription to collaboration 2) building capacity within communities through engagement and promoting strengths within families. After completion of this training, participants will be able to:
  • Understand and describe the Touchpoints Approach
  • Apply the Touchpoints Approach in the Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) setting to understand the themes of 'gatekeeping' between the provider and the family
  • Understand and apply the Touchpoints Principles and Assumptions through Reflective Practice
  • Understand and apply the Touchpoints Developmental and Relational Frameworks
  • Use ‘The Behaviour of the Child as Your Language’ as the cornerstone of the Touchpoints Approach
