The first coaching guide specially designed for home visitors and their supervisors, this groundbreaking book answers the call for more and better training in early childhood home visiting programs. The expert authors developed this guide for two critical purposes: to give supervisors actionable strategies as they coach home visitors, and to give home visitors principles and practices for coaching families of children from birth to 5 years.

Featuring a who’s who of more than 25 interdisciplinary experts, this book goes far beyond “one and done” approaches to training and illuminates the benefits of supported practice, follow-up, and reflection. Readers will learn how to:

  • Make the most of parallel practices, in which the best strategies coaches use to partner with coachees are also used by home visitors to partner with caregivers
  • Use both reflective supervision and practice-based coaching to enhance work with families
  • Apply the principles of adult learning to build respectful and reciprocal coaching relationships
  • Implement research-informed coaching strategies that promote well-being for home visitors and families
  • Ensure culturally responsive home visiting at both the systems level and the individual home visitor level
  • Deliver engaging and effective virtual coaching to both home visitors and families
  • Collaborate with early intervention providers to support families who have children with disabilities
  • Use coaching to increase and monitor fidelity to evidence-based programs and practices

Perfect for use as a professional development resource or a preservice textbook, this transformative book will help both supervisors and practitioners excel in their roles and improve the lives of children and families.
