Description

*****DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT THIS SERIES WILL BE RESCHEDULED BEGINNING MARCH 6th*******

Join us in 2018 for this 3-part series as we examine the impact of adverse childhood experiences on young children 0-8 and their families.

Sign up for one session or all three!

Tuesday January 9, 2018 (6:30 PM-8:30 PM)

What is in an ACE?

Participants will explore the research, science and concept of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)-and their impact to the developing child and family. Through interactive discussion, instruction and information sharing individuals will have an opportunity to explore case studies, identify risk factors and interventions. We will explore the concept of community building both in the classroom and program to buffer risk and minimize impact caused by ACEs.

Tuesday February 6, 2018 (6:30 PM-8:30 PM)

Supporting Young Children and Families Experiencing through a Trauma Informed Approach

Participants will develop an understanding of the common experiences for children experiencing trauma-what are the different types of trauma? How do addiction, chronic poverty and domestic violence create a culture of adversity? Through case studies and exploration of common intervention strategies we will explore together how best to engage meaningfully children and families experiencing advocacy. Local, state and national resources will be shared to extend learning opportunities.

Tuesday March 6, 2018 (6:30 PM-8:30 PM)

Having the Difficult Conversations-Because We Care!

It can be challenging to think about our role as educators in supporting children and families experiencing adversity-as it is multi-faceted and complex. How do we begin these conversations with primary caregivers, each other and our communities? Together we will explore proven strategies to engaging in difficult conversations with families or primary caregivers through exploration of relationship based and strengths based approaches. Participants will walk away with concrete strategies and resources to inform their practice.
