Service Provider Training
From 9:30 AM until 11:30 AM
At Location: Amherst H. Wilder Foundation
The African American Babies Coalition is a group of African American community leaders committed to supporting the healthy development of babies by translating what we know from early childhood development research and brain science into culturally relevant information that can be used in African American family and community life. We are looking for service providers (case managers, social workers, family specialists, health care providers, early childhood education or childcare providers, etc.) who are working with African American clientele to join us in one or all of our three 2-hour workshops in order to gain knowledge, skills, and practices about how to work with African Americans in a culturally-appropriate manner. Our trainers will explore topics such as trauma, toxic stress, and factors that impact the African American community and health outcomes.
Attend one, two or all of our workshops!
Registration Fee: $30.00 per workshop. However, if you attend all three workshops the fee is $80.00
Workshop 1: African American Historical Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experience
This workshop will explore the link between historical trauma faced by the African American community and current challenges that significantly impact health outcomes today. We will also provide best practices to recognize, understand, and address the trauma and disparities with African American clientele. Speaker: Brandon Jones
