The early childhood home visiting workforce has a critical role to play in meeting the evolving needs of families across the country. The effectiveness of home visitors depends in part on their professional well-being and on collaborative relationships with supervisors that foster learning and growth.

This project works to advance understanding of how to support and strengthen the home visiting workforce, including programs funded through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) and Tribal MIECHV programs. The initial groundwork will involve developing and refining research-based conceptual models of professional well-being and reflective supervision. Additional efforts may include adapting or developing and testing measures, evaluating the efficacy of strategies, and conducting further research on related topics.
