WEBINAR: Valuing Passion: Connecting with Families Around What They Care About

September 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Autumn Strausbaugh

Families show us a wide range of emotions, both positive and negative, as they navigate through their ever-changing experiences (e.g., routines, new skills, discipline, feeding) with their child. The negative emotions that families sometimes show can be challenging for providers to manage. Reframing these emotions as coming from a family’s passion for their child can strengthen our partnerships with families. In this webinar, we will explore ways that providers can value families’ passion. You will learn about family engagement strategies for Valuing Passion that you can immediately apply to your work.
