The workshops can be taken as stand-alone sessions or combined to develop stronger relationships with families.
The three workshops were developed to provide skills, build perspective taking and learn new scaffolding supports to work with families in our programs. The three workshops discuss important pieces of the child/family/school partnership that make up the field of early care and education. The first workshop will focus on joining the family system—becoming part of the family. We will discuss ways to break down some of the barriers that keep us from building strong relationships with the families in our programs. The second workshop will build skills in having professional conversations and working through the details of challenging interactions with families. The third workshop will focus on supporting the families long term and continuing to build stronger relationships that support the child, family and you in the process of developing relationships that focus on what is most important to everyone– the child.
