Reflective Practice: Look, Listen, Wonder, and Respond
Weatherston, Deborah J.
Zero to Three (J), v33 n3 p62-65 Jan 2013
The author explores the reflective components of observation, listening, wondering, and response. Together, these components invite parents to discover who their babies are as well as to understand the importance of nurturing relationships, past and present, to development, growth, and change. Of equal interest, reflective practice offers Infant Mental Health home visitors opportunities to explore the meaning and mystery of early relationship development, to understand early experience, and to feel again the warmth or promise of relationships, personal and professional, as they engage and support others through their work.
