Promoting First Relationships Workshop - July 16 & 17, 2018

Product ID: PFR-REG

2-day Learner Workshop -

July 16 & 17, 2018

Seattle - Watertown Hotel

Professionals who work with caregivers and young children (0-3) often see the need to support and guide caregivers in building nurturing relationships with children. Promoting First Relationships® workshop gives professionals the knowledge, tools, and strategies to do so. The Promoting First Relationships program integrates theory, practice and intervention. Trainers use various learning approaches including case studies, role-playing, and reflective dialogue. These approaches allow participants to apply the framework directly to issues they face in their environment.

In this 2-day learner's workshop, participants learn a unique consultation and intervention strategy that they can integrate into their work whether in high-risk, special needs, child-care, or other early childhood fields. The strategy can be used one-on-one with parents and also with child care providers and early childhood teachers responsible for group care. Because Promoting First Relationships is a positive, strengths-based model, caregivers are typically open to intervention and gain competence, and thus investment, in their caregiving.

Your fee covers tuition, all curriculum materials including the Promoting First Relationships manual, video and a packet of reproducible parent handouts.

What participants are saying . . .

"Straightforward and doable, lots of real life examples and opportunity to reflect in groups."
