These free modules are designed for self-paced professional learning. They include videos, printable tip sheets, handouts for families, web-resources, journals, and a focus on self-care.

The modules are available in English and Spanish.

  • Facilitator Guides been developed for each of the nine learning modules. Each Guide provides some ideas for a trainer or supervisor wishing to facilitate a follow-up discussion with a group of home visitors who have completed the module. It assumes that the facilitator has also completed the module and is familiar with its contents and resources. Facilitators do not have to be content experts to lead the activities and discussions.
