Module 1

Starting the PuP Journey

Starting your PuP Journey begins with working alongside the parent or carer to indentify areas of strength and areas of challenge. The goal is to arrive at a shared understanding of the family's current concerns, strengths and areas of difficulty. This is the basis for working together to make family life better.

Starting your PuP Journey is a conversation between a family support practitioner and parents or carers. We begin by placing the child (or children) centre stage to identify their current strengthsĀ and challenges. There is a key focus on understanding who provides the nurturing and sense of safety for this child (children) in order to understand both promixal and distal factors influencing family wellbeing. The ultimate goal is to help children achieve optimal development by having a family and wider network that supports all developmental outcomes.
