Professionals today are encouraged to engage with other professionals, identify strategies that foster collaboration, and promote child and family well-being. As a result, many professionals are searching for innovative, relationship-based approaches to connect with colleagues who support the children and families within the same community. Positive relationships such as these are central to the human experience. The social support and practical help we get and provide through the positive relationships in our lives strengthen our feelings of belonging, security, and self-worth. The supportive collegial relationships, in turn, promote our ability to reflect, learn, and grow as professionals making these relationships an important part of collaborating with other professionals within the same community.
