Welcome to the New Mexico Home Visiting Program, an initiative of the Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD), and Professional Development opportunities for home visitors through that initiative.
The CDD Home Visiting Professional Development Team provides training and technical assistance to the CYFD Home Visiting programs across the state. Core and advanced practice trainings are provided to home visiting staff with a focus on a relationship based, reflective approach using the New Mexico Association for Early Childhood Mental Health (NMAECMH) Competencies for Culturally-Sensitive, Relationship-based Practice Promoting Early Childhood Mental Health as our guide. Home visiting supervisors are also supported through monthly reflective supervision calls from the professional development team to assist their efforts in providing a parallel reflective supervision experience to their home visiting staff. The team also coordinates and facilitates quarterly meetings for home visiting supervisors, which include the CYFD home visiting program manager, to help support the home visiting initiative.
Resources for home visitors and supervisors are also made available on this web site, including:
The Center for Development and Disability at UNM embraces the goals of New Mexico’s Home Visiting Program as they mirror the mission of the CDD and our approach to supporting strong communities of support for children and families, working to promote positive futures and prevent delay, disability, and risk of disability.
