Supporting Children Affected by Parental Incarceration (Virtual)
Do you know a child with a parent who is incarcerated? Do you want to learn how to support the child and family? The incarceration of a parent disrupts parent-child relationships and increases a child’s risk of experiencing behavior problems, academic challenges, and health concerns. In this workshop, participants will learn what the research says on how to help parents and children connect during parental incarceration as well as strategies for supporting affected children.
The workshop will be held on Thursday, February 3, 2022 from 6:30-8:30 PM on Zoom. The cost of the workshop is $10 for 2.0 Registry Credit. Registration is required by January 27. View the flyer.
