Mothers and Babies (MB) training is a 1.5 day in person training lead by a member of the Mothers and Babies Team. The MB training can be held in Chicago or at the program location. It is highly recommended all staff and supervisors who will be implementing MB should attend. If your agency or program works with a Mental Health Consultant, the consultants can be included in the training in order for them to provide ongoing supervision to providers implementing the MB Course. This training will provide a detailed overview of MB and allow participants to practice leading some MB activities.
Training costs include (1) travel and accommodations for trainers, (b) consultation fees for supervision of providers as they implement the curriculum for the first time, and (c) evaluation management in order to assess provider and client acceptability and outcomes. Please contact the Mothers and Babies Expansion Coordinator with any questions about training.
For programs that have received Mothers and Babies training, who are interested in a “refresher” training, or want to train new staff, the following 3-session webinar detailing the MB 1-on-1 Course is available for viewing.
Supervision for MB 1-on-1 intervention entails monthly sessions for six months, conducted by phone or Skype. These supervision meetings are intended to debrief the most recently completed session and plan for the upcoming session, as providers work through the 12-session curriculum with their first few clients.
Supervision for MB group intervention entails six weekly one-hour sessions (once before the group starts and then between each intervention session) conducted by phone or Skype. These supervision meetings are intended to debrief the most recently completed session and plan for the upcoming session.
