WEBINAR: Exploring the Pandemic’s Impact on Children’s Well-Being

February 10, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

As the pandemic and social isolation continue, parents and providers, are increasingly concerned about their children’s mental health and well-being. This webinar will explore some of the possible responses to the pandemic that children may be showing us at this time. We will discuss strategies providers can implement and share with families to support children’s healthy development.

This webinar is part of the Virtual Service Delivery Webinar Series.

The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically changed how we deliver education, health care, and other critical services to young children and their families. Even as some regions of the country are re-opening schools, child care centers, pediatric offices, and more, it is clear that many services will continue to be offered virtually.

To support family-facing providers in their virtual work with children and families, Brazelton Touchpoints Center is providing a series of free 1-hour webinars and an online learning community that will explore the challenges and opportunities posed by virtual service delivery, and share strategies providers have found for building and sustaining strong relationships with families virtually. In partnership with the Rapid Response Virtual Home Visiting (RR-VHV) Collaborative, we are building on lessons learned from virtual home visiting that can benefit providers across all family-facing disciplines and sectors.

All professionals who work with families of young children—including those who work in health care, early care and education, early intervention, child welfare, and family support—are encouraged to attend these webinars. We are pairing the webinars with an online learning community where webinar participants can engage with one another and BTC facilitators around the topics and strategies discussed in the webinars. Learn from others in the field who are also navigating how to connect with young children and families virtually!

Each webinar is 1-hour long, with an optional 30-minute Q&A session at the end with at least one panelist. Participants can register for the entire series or for individual webinars. Participants can also join the online learning community, where you can access recordings of webinars you have missed.

All webinars include live Spanish translation and closed captioning for interested participants. 

This webinar series is made possible in part by the generosity of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Overdeck Family Foundation, and our community of supporters.
