Participants learn about infant communication, safe sleep environments, and the shaken baby syndrome to better assess infants during home visits. Equipped with the information, participants are able to assess parent or caregiver responsiveness to the infant and ability to support specific changes for improved safety of the infant. Participants become familiar with the Period of Purple Crying as a strategy to provide to parents of infants. For substance affected infants and infants born to a dependent youth, participants learn how to develop and document a Plan of Safe Care and offer referrals to parents as required per policy.
