April 2019 Workshops

  • Thursday I 4.4.2019 I 6:30pm – 9:30pm I $10/per person

    The first three years of life are a period of incredible growth. Learn how the earliest relationships with caregivers can promote healthy development. It starts with Responsive Caregiving.  Responsive care is the process of watching and tuning into a child’s cues, thinking about what they might mean, and then responding to them in a sensitive way.  Knowing a child’s temperament, and stage of development will help you guide them and support their growth.

    Presented by: Jeanette Bellerive M.A.

    Los proveedores aprenderán a implementar las prácticas de atención basadas en relaciones que no son algo que se hace una vez y luego se olvida. Aprenderán cómo aumentar el enfoque en la calidad de la relación cuidadora-niño. Cómo trabajar con los niños en el desarrollo social emocional. Los proveedores también aprenderán a continuar el proceso que requiere actualizaciones para el desarrollo profesional, las políticas y los procedimientos con el fin de comunicar a los padres y al personal la importancia de cambiar hacia un modelo que valore la continuidad de la atención.

  • Thursday I 4.11.2019 I 6:30pm—9:30pm I $10/per person

    The first three years of life are a period of incredible growth in all areas of a baby’s development, but most dramatically within an infant’s brain. Throughout the first 3 years, an infant’s brain creates hundreds of trillions of connections, or synapses. In this workshop we will explore the structure of brain development including how infants are “wired” for learning.

    Presented by: Jeanette Bellerive M.A.

En este taller vamos a explorar la estructura y desarrollo del cerebro incluyendo cómo los bebés nacen para aprender.

April - May 2019 Strengthening Families Workshop Series

  • I Thursday I 4.25.2019 I 6:30pm – 9:00pm I $10/per person

    The Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors Framework is a national and international initiative that aims to develop and enhance five specific characteristics (called protective factors) that help keep families strong and children safe from abuse and neglect. A protective factor is a characteristic that makes a parent, child or family more likely to thrive and less likely to experience a negative outcome.

    Resilience, simply defined, means the ability to recover from difficult life experiences, and often to be strengthened by and even transformed by those experiences. Resilient parents have empathy for themselves and others and are able to keep a positive attitude, solve problems creatively and take life’s events in stride.

  • I Thursday I 5.2.2019 I 6:30pm – 9:00pm I $10/per person

    Social connections help families stay strong, get through the hard times and enjoy family life. Families can have many different types of social connections that provide different types of support. Positive social connections can provide support when you need it, help you deal with stress and illness, are a positive influence and bring out the best in you.

    The Annie E. Casey Foundation defines successful families as those who have their basic needs met. They have economic security, housing, health care and other necessary resources in place. They also have some form of education or skill and are connected to family, neighbors, co-workers or friends. This course examines how providers can help support families and help connect them to others who can provide the support they need.

  • I Thursday I 5.9.2019 I 6:30pm – 9:00pm I $10/per person

    Parents who have some knowledge of basic child development are likely to have more realistic expectations of their children. With that knowledge, parents are better able to provide an appropriate amount of nurturing, supervision, and guidance. When parents understand their roles in their children’s lives and learn about specific parenting techniques and strategies, they can form positive relationships with their children and have options for appropriate responses to typical child behaviors.

    This protective factor is the only one that addresses issues with children. The other protective factors are intended to “speak to parents” and offer suggestions and strategies for how they can strengthen their families.

  • I Thursday I 5.16.2019 I 6:30pm – 9:00pm I $10/per person

    Community Cafés are gatherings where people participate in a series of guided conversations. Strengthening families means building the protective factors. This takes creating stronger partnerships with parents and communities. Meaningful conversations are the mechanism we use to develop these relationships.

    This portion of the training is intended to review the basic concepts of the Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors Framework and leave you with some ideas for how you can begin to do your work differently, involve more parents and make the protective factors an integral part of your work.
