The FAN model

The Fussy Baby Network® (FBN) has developed a model to support families experiencing stress related to the birth of a new baby. The FBN model has been shown to decrease symptoms of maternal depression, parenting stress, and to increase maternal self-efficacy. This session will introduce participants to the hallmark of FBN’s approach to family engagement called the FAN (figure 1) because of its visual similarity to a fan (Gilkerson & Gray, 2014). The FAN approach helps to address the parent’s urgent concerns by matching interventions to what the parents are showing they can most use in the moment. Careful attunement and matching to the parents’ experience helps stressed parents feel understood and not alone and fosters a sense of coherence during this difficult time. It is this attention the parent’s experience and urgent concern that allows flexibility in the model so that it can work successfully to support families from diverse cultures, SES and communities. The FAN model has been infused in to numerous programs that provide support to caregivers (e.g., teachers, home visitors, parents) such as infant and early childhood mental health consultation, home visiting, child welfare, supervision and pediatric visits.

Attendees will participate in opportunities to practice and learn more about their own strengths and challenges in relationship-based work including learning more about the professional use of self; engaging and maintaining healthy boundaries and ethics; parallel process; and deep listening.
