Community based organizations and nonprofit agencies across the country and around the world have partnered with the Brazelton Touchpoints Center (BTC) to bring professional development, training and technical assistance, program evaluation, and consultation to their communities for more than 25 years. At BTC, we come alongside and learn with the infants, children, families, and communities that we have the honor of working with. We strive to listen first. We seek the wisdom of lived experience, and value family and community voice — and power. We can help your organization bolster staff knowledge and skills as well as self-care and well-being. Together, we can create a shared vision and common language within your organization and across your community to build on the strengths of all kinds of families so that every baby thrives, and all children flourish.
Come learn with us as we learn with families and communities. They’re the experts on their babies and children, their families, communities, and cultures. Your organization will find re-energizing opportunities for learning — and unlearning — among a community of kindred spirits in our training courses and workshops. Your agency’s staff can connect with providers from across the country who aspire to dignity, equity and justice for all families and communities. Together we’ll learn from babies and children — and their families, communities and culture — what they need to grow up healthy and ready to care for themselves, others, and the earth, as they find joy and wonder along the way.
In every BTC training course and workshop, we nurture the curiosity, humility and imagination it takes to do with, rather than to or for, families. We strive to create safe spaces to reflect, pause and grow — together.
Contact us to find out how you can bring these learning opportunities to your organization. Join us to be inspired and re-inspired by the strengths of families, communities, and cultures; the power of development; and what every baby knows.
BTC’s intensive, interactive, relational approach to adult learning, and Touchpoints Training follow-up reflective practice sessions provide your agency’s staff with the support to apply what they’ve learned, and to learn together through trial and error. We’ll partner with you to identify the changes you want to make in your organizations’ policies, procedures, and protocols that will reinforce the practice improvements you value and spread them consistently across your organization’s culture. In partnership, we can unleash an organization-wide approach to family and community engagement that is all about doing with, rather than to or for, families and communities, and that builds on their expertise, the wisdom of their cultures, and what every baby knows.
