Toward Relational, Reflective, Nurturing Practice in Multisite Programs
Pitkin, Ann; Norman-Murch, Trudi
Zero to Three (J), v25 n5 p23-26 May 2005
Creating reflective, relationship-based services and programs takes time, commitment, resources, and sustained effort. This article describes the experiences of two very different organizations: the Training and Staff Development Group for New York State's Healthy Families Program; and Southwest Human Development, a community-based agency serving young children and families in Phoenix, Arizona, that manages a multisite Healthy Families program. The experiences of both organizations illustrate the benefits of creating reflective, relationship-based services for young children and families, as well as the long-term commitment and sustained work necessary to create organizational change.
