INNOVATION IN ACTION
FIND: Using Science to Coach Caregivers
At Children’s Home Society of Washington, social service providers are using video clips of parents interacting with their young children to help the parents identify their own strengths and learn which interactions best promote healthy development. Created in partnership with researchers at the University of Oregon and Oregon Social Learning Center, this intervention supports positive interactions in young families facing adversity and models an innovative co-creation and testing process for science-based strategies. Learn more in this Innovation in Action video, the second in this series of portraits that focuses on innovative, collaborative work as part of Frontiers of Innovation.
