Looking to 2020-2021:
We have enjoyed being able to sponsor District 29 meetings for Principals and Assistant Principals the past several years. I was curious to know how the meetings will change this coming year and if there will still be an opportunity to sponsor your meetings and share the work we’re doing in NYC schools.
The current pandemic and social and political climate have affected the families and communities we serve in myriad ways – from widespread unemployment and food insecurity to violence and the deaths of loved ones. These types of traumatic experiences can have profound and lasting effects, especially for children.
In this webinar series, we’ll explore trauma and the protective factors that help build resilience and counteract the adverse effects of trauma. We’ll also see how communities, schools, organizations and individuals around the country are using a trauma-informed lens to guide their work.
Join us for an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) 101 webinar that will highlight what ACEs are on a personal and community level, the importance of understanding the impacts of ACEs, the science behind adversity and how Fresno, CA has put together a Trauma and Resilience Network focused on engaging and supporting children and families in building resilience and beginning to heal the generational trauma in the community. (Webinar brought to you by members of The Children’s Movement of Fresno, Fresno Cradle to Career and The Fresno Community Health Improvement Partnership)
In this webinar, we’ll focus on how two organizations are putting the research into practice. First, the South Dakota Statewide Family Engagement Center will share information and takeaways from their trauma training module for educators and providers. Then, Ready4K, an evidence-based family engagement curriculum delivered via text messages, will share their tips for communicating with and supporting families in a trauma-informed way.
In this webinar, the Collaborative Action for Family Engagement Center, the Statewide Family Engagement Center for Maryland and Pennsylvania, will highlight the work happening around trauma-informed practices in MD and PA. Also, child psychologist Dr. Seth Shaffer will answer questions from families about how to ensure their child’s social and emotional well-being during this time. He will provide tips and strategies to help families cope and overcome barriers associated with COVID.
I just wanted to touch base and let you know that this afternoon, Elevate Education will host our 5th free Bilingual Parent Webinar. Thousands of parents have joined us these last five weeks as we’ve been able to go over a variety of topics for parents and families going through remote instruction. Please feel free to share with your families as we hope to offer these resources to all for free.
