The Meaningful Family Time suite of resources was designed to help adults who serve very young children in the child welfare system create meaningful family time visits. The resources provide a brief overview of the research that underpins the importance of family time, reflection questions, and practice tips to put the research into practice. They are tailored to specific audiences (e.g. attorneys, case workers, caregivers, judges, supervisors, GAL/CASA and parents) so that their content is relevant and practical. The suite of resources was created by a national network of early childhood mental health experts and practitioners (the Harris PDN Network) and funded by the Irving Harris Foundation.
