About HIP Moms Meet our Team! VFBA Classes Workshops

The Vermont Family Based Approach uses evidence-based health promotion, prevention, and intervention from the family perspective. We emphasize the importance of emotional and behavioral health for health in general, recognizes parental emotional and behavioral health as essential for children’s health, and individualizes evidence-based care to meet the unique needs of each family.
