Cultural Humility: Less talking. Less assuming. More compassion. More listening.
Limited Capacity seats available

Cultural humility is a tool that every one of us who works with people from diverse backgrounds should use every day of our professional life and beyond. It is a multi-dimensional concept that looks at 3 sets of principles that guide the thinking, behavior and actions of individuals and institutions to positively affect interpersonal relationships as well as systems change.
As professionals who work in various fields and assist clients from all walks of life, how prepared are we to treat our clients with human dignity and show them that we respect them, and we are here to serve them. Call it bias or stereotypes, each of us knows or has a list of traits that have been ascribed to people. How often do we think that our biases or stereotypes affect the services that we provide? Let us talk about our assumptions for a minute and how we project those assumptions versus what are our client’s actual experiences and who they really are.

Developing a Strong Parenting Community
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This presentation will discuss evidence-based practices, successful partnerships and current programs that help to achieve positive outcomes for a strong Parenting Community. It is vital to strengthen families by building connections to improve safety, permanency and well-being. Developing a supportive and collaborative parenting community will increase protective factors. Enhancing parental resilience, providing an array of social connections, facilitating knowledge of parenting and child development, providing concrete support in times of need and supporting social and emotional competence of children are the key principles that will be highlighted to promote safety and well-being.  

In an effort to address the Adverse Childhood Experiences in our communities, it is necessary to decrease risk factors associated to abuse, neglect and household dysfunction. Research shows that communities which establish caring connections have better overall health, safety and well-being. Identifying and reducing barriers must be addressed with committed community partnerships that work together to gain parental engagement and secure sustainable funding. This presentation will address how this can be accomplished by developing a Parenting Community which requires a collective effort of similar missions, visions and values from all involved.
