WHAT IS THE FAN?
The FAN is a structure for engaging families, a tool for attunement during a visit, matching interventions to what parents need most in the moment – and a guide for reflective practice. Reflective practice is a core professional competency in working with infants and their families.
AND THE TRAINING?
FAN training is a programme for practitioners in a team and/or service and their clinical supervisors. Practitioners will be working with infants and young children and their families and whanau across a variety of settings and disciplines. The training was developed for home visitors but is now implemented in early childhood education programmes, child protection, infant mental health, child development teams and medical student teaching.
WHO IS IT FOR?
In New Zealand we would recommend this training for Well Child/Tamariki Ora providers, NGO’s providing home visiting programmes such as Family Start, Early Intervention programmes, Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Services, Early Childhood Education providers and Child Protection practitioners.
Level I Core Training is a two day training for practitioners and their supervisors which covers the FAN background, theory of change, FAN core processes and ARC of Engagement, and their application in working with families. Supervisors attend an extra workshop on the evening of the second day.
Level II Facilitated Practice supports practitioners and supervisors in applying the approach in their setting. Level II occurs over a period of 5-6 months following the training. Practitioners use the approach with families and complete two FAN Reflection Tools each month (10 Tools over 5-6 months). Practitioners meet monthly with their supervisor for 45 minutes to conduct a FAN Review Session where they process the Tools and their use of the approach.
The team/service supervisors themselves have supervision from the training facilitators each month and all FAN Review Tools and FAN Self-Assessments are sent to the Fussy Baby Network® (FBN) Erikson Institute for review.
