In this seven-part webinar series, Dr. Naomi Younggren presents on the Routines-Based Interview-Fidelity Coach (RBI-FC), which is designed to offer providers, teams, and programs tools to define, observe, and assess accurate and consistent implementation of the RBI. The RBI-FC is best used after initial training on the RBI.

The Routines-Based Interview (RBI) is an evidence-based authentic child and family assessment and is supported by research:  to begin building a strong relationship with the family; to obtain rich descriptions of child and family functioning; and to result in a family-identified list of functional, routines-based outcomes/goals.

Topics covered in the webinar series include:  authentic child and family assessment, evaluation and assessment, routines-based interview, routines-based intervention, the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), and Family Support/Engagement.
