Touchpoints Community Level Training

We offer the Brazelton Touchpoints Community Level Training program for teams in communities that have made the commitment to become a Touchpoints Site.

The Touchpoints Community Level Program is a five-day intensive training offered to communities that want to bring Brazelton Touchpoints to their family care system. A team of three or more providers from each community complete Touchpoints training and one year of ongoing mentor-ship that includes monthly contact, a site visit and a follow up meeting. This team delivers training to other professionals in their community in the Touchpoints Approach, with the support of Brazelton Touchpoints Center faculty.

For existing Touchpoints sites, we offer additional training to add or replace existing Touchpoints Team members. Participants must have completed Individual Level or Early Child Care and Education Training.

Please contact Mai Nguyen-Kim for registration information.
