How can providers honor the children and caregivers they work with as the experts of their own lives? In our 12th episode we feature Brazelton Touchpoints Center, located in Boston, Massachusetts, to learn about shifting to mental models that honor the dignity of children and their caregivers, a key strategy for creating a sustainable world where children grow up to be thriving adults in their local community. Listen along as we hear from Josh Sparrow and Mindy May share the story of Brazelton Touchpoints Center, their experiences with shifting mental models in their efforts to make the Brazelton vision become reality, and the lessons learned as mentors in the NOW Learning Community.
