The Promotional Guide System is a tailored and flexible partnership-based approach that uses developmental neuroscience, parenting research and practice to improve family engagement and the identification of family strengths, needs and adversity.
Promotional Guide System
The Promotional Guide System has received wide recognition in national policy and reviews and is widely used by community health services in the UK.
Its structured, focussed and flexible practice method helps parents and practitioners to make accurate, well-informed decisions with parents and carers about family needs.
The Promotional Guide System enables mothers, fathers and carers to explore the health and well-being of their babies, co-parent and family relationships, family and social support, foetal and infant care and interaction, and the developmental tasks of early parenthood. The intention is to develop a shared understanding of family ecology and a clear, focussed plan of action to build resilience and reduce risk.
