Author:Kristen Shook Slack

Subject:research on effective engagement in home visiting programs

Dear colleagues: We are working on putting together a training curriculum for a new prevention program, and want to make sure that we have our hands on all the latest and greatest research on outreach and engagement in home visiting programs. If anyone is aware of a seminal article or report on successful outreach and engagement strategies (specifically, initial engagement--not retention-related) in the context of home visiting interventions, we would greatly appreciate the citation or link. Kind regards, Kristi Slack -- Kristen Shook Slack, Ph.D. Professor and Associate Director School of Social Work University of Wisconsin-Madison 1350 University Avenue Madison, WI 53706 ph: 608-263-3671 fx: 608-263-3836
