Winter 2018 Issue: Family Life Education and Home Visiting

We are in a time of unprecedented support for home visiting and a pronounced appetite for professionalization of home visitors. Home visiting has bipartisan support given the emphasis on evidence-based programs and return on investment (Harrison & May, 2018). With increased investments and interests, the need for family-centered services and a clear scope of practice for home visitors remains. Little attention has been given explicitly to the role of Family Life Education (FLE) and certification in home visiting (c.f., Machir, 2014; Petkus, 2015) but its principles and ideas are present in the home visiting field even if not given full recognition by directors and other stakeholders.

Please consider contributing an article about:

  • Your professional experience(s) in eliciting stakeholder input in home visiting ideas
  • Promoting family engagement in home visiting
  • Ideas for proactive adaptation of Parents as Teachers (PAT) to include FLE principles
  • How your CFLE-approved program incorporates home visiting into the curriculum

Submission deadline is Dec. 19, 2018. Please review the author guidelines before submitting.
