|Exploring Primary Caregiving and Continuity of Care
A PITC Training Session
|Session Format: 3-hour session, 30-40 participants, reflection, small group problem solving, lecture, large group discussion, DVD clips|
|This session explores more deeply two of the three recommended program policies—primary care and continuity of care—that are presented in the DVD Together in Care. Activities during this session encourage participants to reflect on the meaning of relationships in their lives and connect their feelings about relationships to the relationship experiences of infants and toddlers in group care. Attachment research is reviewed to support the PITC’s emphasis on primary relationships that continue over time. In a small group activity, participants develop strategies to address social, economic, and attitudinal barriers to implementing the policies of primary care and continuity.
