David Mandel & Associates LLC recently completed a round of training and technical assistance for the Connecticut Children’s Trust Fund.  The training focused primarily on supporting the ability of the Nuturing Families Network and other home visitors to work with families in complex situations including domestic violence. The target audience for the trainings included fathering home visitors, their clinical supervisors and the wider group of traditional home visitors who work with mothers.  The Home Visiting program is a tremendous asset for CT’s families, working with at risk families to prevent child abuse and neglect and promote healthy parenting.

From their web site: “The program provides screening and assessment, group support and intensive home visiting for new parents who are at high risk for child abuse and neglect. The program focuses on nurturing parenting, child development, and health and community resources. The Nurturing Families Network serves approximately 2,000 families in intensive home visiting and 600 families in Nurturing parenting groups. The program screens 7,200 and provided supportive services to 1,700.”
