Knitzer, Jane

This issue brief highlights emerging strategies to promote the emotional wellness of young children and their families, including those most at risk; to enhance the skills of the families and other caregivers who nurture and support young children; and to ensure that those who need specialized services get them. It describes a number of initiatives developed across the nation, with an emphasis on two Starting Points sites, San Francisco and Vermont.
