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.
WHAT IS 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.
Snacks provided. All trainings meet the NH Child Care Licensing Unit Requirement & Individual session certificates will be issued.
