K474 – Parent-Child Relationship Assessment in Early Childhood
This course explores social/emotional and relationship screening and assessment. Students will explore and discuss a range of screening tools and then will have more in-depth exposure to selected tools through a hands-on, assessment experience with a young child and caregivers. All students will be trained in the Brief Infant Toddler Social Emotional Assessment (BITSEA), the Crowell Procedure, and the Working Model of the Child Interview (WMCI). Students will be introduced to the use of the FEAS in assessment, and the Parent Development Interview. Students will conduct a thorough and multi-modal assessment of the parent-child relationship and will integrate the information learned into a professional report.
