Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network and MI-AIMH
Early Childhood Learning Series
This training is sponsored generously by the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWHN). Therefore, training attendees need to be employed by a Detroit Wayne Infant Mental Health program and a coupon code is required to register.
The PICCOLO is a checklist of 29 observable behaviors in 4 domains. It is reliable, valid, easy to learn and practical to use. The PICCOLO is a tool that can be used to assess strengths, reveal needs, and monitor change. In this training participants will learn about the 4 domains of the PICCOLO and how to score the domains. Participants will learn how to identify how each parent shows their strengths and strategies and techniques to support positive parenting. What do practitioners say about the PICCOLO? “PICCOLO helps highlight weak and strong skills”; “You see things you might want to work with the parent on the next visit….things you don’t always see.”
The PICCOLO was developed by Lori Roggman, Gina Cook, Mark Innocenti, Vonda Jump , Jim Akers, Katie Christiansen , Cora Price and LauraMichele Gardner. The use of this tool during home visits has been affirmed. The methodology for use in CMHSP Homebased Services for infants and toddlers will be discussed during the training. This training will also discuss use of the PICCOLO in treatment and how it can help guide clinician’s treatment recommendations and progress. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) supports this observational tool as a best practice and encourages CMHSPs to have clinical staff trained to utilize the PICCOLO.

Training will include:
- how to introduce use of the PICCOLO with families
