Use of Telehealth and Strategies to Stay Connected – April 22, 2020
April 22, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PDTFree
Using telehealth in infant and early childhood services to support and maintain relationships with families.
When circumstances do not allow for in-home, in-person services, telehealth technology offers possibilities for infant and early childhood professionals to support and maintain our relationships with families. This 1.5 hour session presents relationship-based principles and practices to help us connect with families during these unprecedented times and beyond. Utilizing principles for practice can help structure our work and help focus on the needs of the children and families in our care. This session will offer strategies to ground ourselves during times of heightened stress and “hold” the families in our care as well as our multiple personal and professional responsibilities. Nucha Isarowong, PhD, LCSW, Director of Advanced Clinical Training Program at the Barnard Center for Infant Mental Health and Development at the University of Washington; Mia Eddin, Clinical Director of Perinatal Support Washington; and Kristi Armstrong, the Director Endorsement and Reflective Practice with the Washington Association for Infant Mental Health will facilitate this session.
This Zoom session is free, and invite link will be sent to participants separately after registration.
