Overview and Introductory Comments: Frantic families attempting to manage their infant’s excessive, unexplained irritability provides a challenge for designing and evaluating a home-based, family focused intervention program. Issues and outcomes in conducted a home-based nursing intervention as well as the effect of the intervention of infant behavior, parenting stress and parent child interaction will be presented in this symposium. Programs evaluation and clinical recommendations for assessing and intervening with families with irritable infants will be discussed. Conceptual Basis for Intervention Model: Viewing infant irritability as a developmental, psychobiologic disorder within the context the family system is defined as a behavior disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of fussiness, crying, restlessness, diminished soothability, inability to fall asleep, and increased sensitivity to stimuli. An active intervention strategy, the REST routine, was developed and tested on irritable infants. Four concepts (regulation, entrainment, structure and touch) in the REST routine guided the intervention for the infants and four concepts (reassurance, empathy, support and time-out) guided the intervention for the parents.
