We are committed to providing high-quality, evidence-informed training to child and family care professionals in a variety of disciplines. Families seek education and support from medical providers, parent educators, home visitors, counselors, teachers, religious leaders, librarians, and others. We envision a state where no matter what door a family enters, they can expect to receive respect, empathy, and accurate information and education. Our webinars, training and technical assistance assist child and family care professionals to become more confident and competent in their work. Here are free pre-recorded webinars hosted by a variety of professionals on a variety of topics relevant to strengthening and supporting children and families. After each webinar, we hope that you will let us know 1) how you increased your knowledge or understanding and 2) how you plan to put this to use in your work.
