Event Detail

Event Name:  NCAST-AVENUW Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Training
Event Purpose or Identified Need(s):  The NCAST-AVENUW Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Feeding and Teaching Scales are used for measuring parent-child interaction and communication behaviors. The Sleep Activity Record (SAR) can help pregnant mothers and caregivers promote predictable behaviors in their babies through specific activities, routines and interactions. This workshop offers health professionals in-depth training in the use of the Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Feeding and Teaching Scales in addition to the Sleep Activity Record (SAR). The Feeding and Teaching PCI scales: * Are valid and reliable measures for assessing parent-child interaction. * Easily identify strengths as well as weaknesses. * Assess problems early in the caregiver/child communication/interaction pattern at a point when intervention is most effective. * Provide separate but parallel observations of the caregiver-child pairs. * Can be pre and post measures. Are recognized by the legal system in dealing with custody and child abuse or neglect cases. Course objectives: 1. Identify infant sleep/wake states, potent and subtle engagement and disengagement cues, and caregiver-child adaptation; 2. Utilize the SAR record with caregivers and children; 3. Observe and analyze caregiver-child interactions; 4. Achieve inter-rater reliability certification for the PCI Feeding and Teaching Scales; and, 5. Describe appropriate preventive and supportive caregiver-child interventions.
