Home Visiting


Upcoming Events

More mothers’ breastfeeding, and for longer. Less maternal depression. Better child outcomes by 6 months of age. Improved well-child primary care visit participation and emergency room use. All these and more were the results of a California county’s public health nurse home visiting program for Medi-Cal eligible families back in the early 2000s, when the Brazelton Touchpoint Center’s (BTC’s) Touchpoints Approach and behavioral observation of the newborn were foundational to these home visitors’ professional preparation.

Virtual Service Delivery Webinar Series

BTC has had the honor and privilege of serving home visitors across the country by contributing what we’ve been learning over the course of the pandemic to the Rapid Response-Virtual Home Visiting webinar series. We even created our own 18-episode webinar series on how all kinds of professionals who partner with families of infants and young children have been learning to do their work virtually.
