Touchpoints Approach Training Begins September 20, 2017

 

As a professional or volunteer who works with families, or an early care and education provider working with young children, are you looking for ways to improve connections and relationships with families of young children?

By helping parents identify and expect bursts and regressions in child behavior (the “touchpoints”), you can reduce parental frustration and self-doubt while fostering the parents enjoyment of their child as well as parenting skills. Learn about the developmental and relational elements of parent-child-provider relationships and their practical applications during this multi-session training.

The Touchpoints Approach training series is on Wednesdays, September 20, October 4 and 18, and November 1 and 15 at the Racine County Ives Grove Offices, 14200 Washington Ave, Sturtevant. The training fee is $75, which covers materials, a light meal, and snacks. Up to 22 Registry credits will be awarded for this Tier 3 training. The workshop includes 6 reflective practice sessions as a follow up to the workshop.

The Touchpoints Approach was developed by T. Berry Brazelton, MD along with a team at the Brazelton Touchpoints Center in Boston, http://www.brazeltontouchpoints.org.

The Racine County Touchpoints Project is supported by United Way of Racine County, Racine County, and UW-Extension. To learn more about the training and the Touchpoints Project in Racine County, go to: https://racine.uwex.edu/family-living/touchpoints-project/
