February 6 @ 8:30 am - February 7 @ 12:00 pm PST


February 6 & 7, 2024 | 8:30AM – 12PM PACIFIC TIME via Zoom

What is Promoting First Relationships in Pediatrics?
An interactive workshop to learn how to nurture and support the parent-child relationship during everyday clinic interactions with families and children.

Who Should Attend?
Members of the multidisciplinary primary care team—front desk staff, care coordinators, medical assistants, pediatricians, family medicine providers, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, therapists, allied health professionals, and navigators.

You Will Learn How To:
  • Observe and support responsive caregiving during clinic visits by understanding the foundations of early childhood social-emotional development and elements of safe, stable and nurturing child-caregiver relationships.
  • Approach well child-care through a relationship focused lens including feeding and sleeping by learning developmental timing of key changes and their impact on the parent-child relationship.
  • Reframe challenging behaviors for families by helping caregivers recognize the unmet social and emotional needs that underlie their child’s behavior.
  • Apply specific skills that translate principles of trauma-informed care, cultural humility and strengths-based approaches into everyday clinic interactions ensuring that families feel safe, valued and effective in raising their young children.
  • Experience a renewed sense of meaning and joy during your interactions and visits using the relationship-based framework and skills.

Ongoing Support:
For participants interested in ongoing training after the workshop to support implementation and continuation of the Promoting First Relationships approach, we provide additional online content and mentored monthly consultation sessions led by master Promoting First Relationship trainers.
