How do we ensure that children have a safe, stable, nurturing environment in which to grow? One strategy is engaging communities to support family-friendly policy and practice changes. Family-friendly workplaces and a family-friendly society are good for children, parents, and elders; they are in the best interest of employers; and, in the long run, they benefit all communities. Based on the latest research and strategies for preventing child abuse and neglect, this training will raise awareness and understanding about the connections between preventing and mitigating adverse childhood experiences, which lead to stronger families and stronger businesses. Specific examples of actions that can be taken will be provided.
This training is approved for KDHE child care licensing hours; certificates of attendance will be provided to all participants.
