Strengthening Reflective Capacity in Skilled Home Visitors
Gilkerson, Linda; Imberger, Jaci
ZERO TO THREE, v37 n2 p46-53 Nov 2016
This article describes the FAN (Facilitating Attuned Interactions) approach to attunement in relationships and how it serves as a framework for reflective practice in an exemplary home visiting program. The authors highlight the role of the FAN as a tool for "reflection-in-action" and as a guide for "reflection-on-action." The process of learning the FAN combines formal training with mentored practice within the reflective supervisory relationship. There is a parallel process for the supervisor who is mentored by a FAN trainer through a similar reflective process. Home visitors reported changes in the perspectives and practices as they incorporated the FAN into their reflective practice, as did the supervisor as she grew in her capacity to provide reflective supervision.
