Touchpoints professional development: Attitudes into practice: Recruitment for Touchpoints training


A reflective practice cycle begins with intentional recruitment. Each site coordinating team considers what they know about the community strengths, ties to their inquiry project, and participant background and diversity as they recruit trainees. Gathering and reflecting upon this information is the first step in the reflective practice process. As the training progresses, continued reflection assists the coordinator and facilitators in responding to emerging issues in the group. After the training, looking back highlights lessons learned. This collaborative process builds equity and the capacity to advocate for extending equitable practices in partnerships with families, organizations, and communities. (author abstract)
