Through these scenarios, you will practice broaching the subject of a positive screening for: Maternal depression Developmental concerns Food insecurity Then you will follow through with an effective, family-centered discussion about how to address the issue that was raised.
Using techniques drawn from Motivational Interviewing (MI), you will practice shared decision-making with families by asking open-ended questions, reflecting their concerns, showing empathy, and respectfully sharing information. By exploring the ways that different screenings reveal a more comprehensive picture of a child's family environment and development, you will see the benefit that these screenings can provide in your own practice.
