Beginning the home visiting relationship-How Do You Prepare?

October 2nd, 2008 Posted in Child Dev, Home Visiting Strategies, Partnering with Families
The beginning is the most important part of the work- Plato

The beginning of any new undertaking can set the tone for the upcoming work that will take place.  In home visiting, the first home visit is the beginning of a relationship that may extend over months, even years or may be for a relatively brief period of time.  There are many unknown questions that a home visitor can have before starting his/her relationship with a new home visit child and family.  These questions have the ability to stir up curiosity, excitement, and maybe even anxiety.  Being prepared to begin this new relationship can be helpful.  But, what does it mean for a home visitor to “be prepared”?

Share your thoughts on how you prepare for a first home visit with a child and family by reflecting on the following:
What do you usually bring with you on your first home visit with a family?  Why?
What do you focus on during a first home visit?  Why?
How do you establish rapport with families?
Anything else you would like to add……
