Training

Minding the Baby® (MTB) National Office faculty and staff offer a variety of training opportunities for organizations seeking either to implement (or supplement) reflective parenting programs, provide professional development for family service professionals, or to replicate the evidence-based MTB service delivery model. 

Currently, there are four kinds of training available, including a 3-day introductory training institute, which can stand alone or be supplemented by a multi-phase replication program for full scale MTB implementation or – for organizations with similar reflective parenting programs – serve as the basis for ongoing consultation and supervision. 

For those wishing to implement the full MTB intervention with required evaluation component, all staff involved with the program are required to complete the replication program, including introductory training in addition to participation in a combination of on-site and distance consultations over a minimum of a three-year period. 

A more comprehensive menu of training and consultation is currently under development and will include additional DVD and webinar offerings. These are anticipated for release beginning in 2018.
