Short-Term Home Visiting for Parents
Cooley, Morgan
Journal of Family Social Work, v14 n2 p179-188 2011
The purpose of this article is to review various aspects of home-visiting programs that have shown to be effective in recent literature to inform policy makers, practitioners, and other involved stakeholders of the current best practices or limitations and to discuss future recommendations based on the literature. Areas of review include intervention design, home-visitor qualifications to fit program design, ongoing staff training and supervision, cultural competency, family-centered approaches, and appropriate intensity and duration through frequent home visiting. Home visiting demonstrates many promising outcomes, as well as challenges, and home-visiting programs would benefit most from more research and more collaboration between programs, service providers, policy makers, and funding sources.
