Event Details


The FAN is a structure for engaging families, a tool for attunement during a visit, matching interventions to what parents most need in the moment and a guide for reflective practice. Reflective Practice is a core professional competency in working with infants and families.


Level I 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. Practitioners attending the training will be working with infants and young children and their whanau across a variety of settings and disciplines. Supervisors attend an extra workshop on the evening of the second day.


This training was developed for home visitors but is now implemented in early childhood education programmes, medical student teaching, and infant mental health and child development teams. In New Zealand we would recommend this training for the following programmes and services: WellChild/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. 


We welcome registration from teams - practitioner(s) + their supervisor(s).

This training will be facilitated by Professor Linda Gilkerson of the Erikson Insitute,Chicago - with Dr Denise Guy, Judy Hunter and Lucie Zwimpfer.

Registration is $920.00 per person.This will cover the (fully catered) 2 day training, attendance of the designated supervisor for your group at the evening workshop on Supervisor Training, and monthly supervision for the supervisor over 5-6 months suporting practice to complete Level II training. 

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. 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.
