Fussy Baby Network® New Orleans and Gulf Coast: Using the FAN to Support Families
Heller, Sherryl Scott; Breuer, Anna
ZERO TO THREE, v35 n3 p56-62 Jan 2015
This article describes the components of the FAN model used in the Fussy Baby Network® intervention. Careful attunement and matching to the parents' experience help stressed parents feel understood and not alone and foster a sense of coherence during this difficult time. It is this attention to the parent's experience that allows flexibility in the model so that it can be successfully used to support families from a disaster impacted region, such as South Louisiana, that is rich in multiple cultures, diverse communities, and various socioeconomic status levels. Case vignettes are used to highlight the 5 components of this model. The vignettes selected reflect the diversity of families served by this site.
