Service Provider Training
From 9:30 AM until 11:30 AM
At Location: Amherst H. Wilder Foundation
The African American Babies Coalition is a group of African American community leaders committed to supporting the healthy development of babies by translating what we know from early childhood development research and brain science into culturally relevant information that can be used in African American family and community life. We are looking for service providers (case managers, social workers, family specialists, health care providers, early childhood education or childcare providers, etc.) who are working with African American clientele to join us in one or all of our three 2-hour workshops in order to gain knowledge, skills, and practices about how to work with African Americans in a culturally-appropriate manner. Our trainers will explore topics such as trauma, toxic stress, and factors that impact the African American community and health outcomes.
Attend one, two or all of our workshops!
Registration Fee: $30.00 per workshop. However, if you attend all three workshops the fee is $80.00
Workshop 2: Supporting African American Families
The second workshop in the series will address how to accurately recognize trauma and how it impacts parents and children within the family unit. Also, we will provide everyday practical parenting strategies to explore with African American parents that support the healthy development in their children in the form of 15 key factors about healthy holistic development. Speaker: Sameerah Bilal-Roby
Time and Date: 9:30am-11:30am on Friday, October 14th
