Event description

Description

Beginning with interactive role-playing, participants will experience being informally labeled, as many families are, by cultural, behavioral and physical distinctions. We will look at how a positive mindset fosters better understanding. We will share practices and strategies that strengthen the six types of family engagement: parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision making and collaborating in the community.

In this workshop you will:

• recognize the importance of treating families with respect and understanding

• develop a positive mindset for positive interactions

• identify barriers to positive family engagement and strategies to overcome those barriers

• develop, create and share ideas for positive family engagement
