The goal of the project is to build, increase, and sustain the reflective capacities and infant mental health competencies in Family Foundations Home Visiting programs at the provider, supervisory and organizational levels.


  • Home visitors and supervisors will increase their knowledge of reflective practice and reflective supervision and understand why it is important and beneficial to their work

  • Home visitors and supervisors will demonstrate the ability to practice reflectively

  • Home visiting supervisors will build their capacities to provide reflective supervision to professionals within their program

  • Reflective practices and approaches will be sustained and integrated into and throughout the home visiting program and agency

  • Home visitors and supervisors will build their knowledge of infant mental health competencies and utilize these competencies in their practice with young children and families  

  • Home Visiting professionals will be provided with support and opportunity to earn and maintain IMH-Endorsement®

 The project design is informed by the parallel process.  Supports are integrated throughout the system such that home visitors support families, the consultant and the HV supervisor support home visitors, the consultant supports the supervisors, and a mentor supports the consultant. The project team supports the entire group.
