About the eBook

"They have done a superb job of defining the issues of home visiting, addressing the new issues as well as updating previous concerns, and condensing the vast literature into manageable bites. It is well documented, cited, and draws from a wealth of experience and research of the authors."

--Mimi A. Graham, Institute of Science & Public Affairs, Florida State University

"My overall impression to this book is WOW! This second edition is an overwhelming improvement to a previously well-written and unique book. This book has filled a specific need in the literature for human services; the revision is expanded as well as an improved version of the material."

--Denice Goodrich-Liley, School of Social Work, Boise State University

In a single volume, this book provides scholarly information about the history and philosophies of home visiting as well as practical information about interviewing and hiring home visitors, establishing positive relationships with clients, developing helping skills, and addressing the needs of high-risk families. Significantly updated since the first edition (1990), the authors have comprehensively identified and described issues relevant to supporting a wide range of families through home visiting, whether based in early childhood or educational programs, social work settings, clinics, and hospitals.

Recent evaluations of home visiting are summarized and practical suggestions for evaluating local programs are also included. This is an easy to read and essential resource for both beginning and experienced home visitors, trainers and supervisors of home visitors, and directors of home visiting programs.
