Families show us a wide range of emotions, both positive and negative, as they navigate through their ever-changing experiences (e.g., routines, new skills, discipline, feeding) with their child. The negative emotions that families sometimes show can be challenging for providers to manage. Reframing these emotions as coming from a family’s passion for their child can strengthen our partnerships with families. In this webinar, we explore ways to value families’ passion as an engagement strategy.

Course Format:
Live Interactive Workshop on Wednesday, November 09, 2022 10:00 AM PST

Professionals who work with families of young children, including child care educators, family child care providers, home visitors, pediatricians, early intervention educators, and more.

What you will learn:

  • How to recognize what a family cares about
  • How to reframe a family’s passion for the benefit of the family partnership

This course is a part of the Strengths-Based Family Engagement Workshop Series. Building relationships with families is one of the most important things that a provider can do in supporting both the child and their family. Yet, building collaborative, trusting relationships is not always easy. Research shows that using a strengths-based approach to family engagement supports the well-being of the family.

In this series, you will learn strategies that you can immediately apply to your work to further cultivate a strengths-based mindset in your work with families. Each workshop is 1.5 hours, and participants receive a certificate of attendance. Register for each webinar individually or sign up for the whole series.
