This session emphasizes the importance of building relationships with families in developing family-service provider collaboration. The video, Embrace Possibilities, is viewed to observe specific examples of what that family-service provider collaboration can look like and what families view as important in building those collaborative relationships so that they can be informed decision-makers for their child and themselves. Session activities give participants the opportunity to explore strategies in four areas of development of family-service provider collaboration: building relationships, gathering and sharing information and resources, developing collaborative plans, and implementing collaborative plans. This session lays the foundation for further discussion in Session 7, Developing Family-Service Provider Leadership.
