Finding it hard to bring up sensitive topics with families or colleagues? You’re not alone.
As professionals working with families of young children, including early childhood educators, family, and center-based child care providers, home visitors, pediatric health providers, and early interventionists, and other family facing professionals, we may often feel anxious or at a loss about how to navigate conversations on challenging topics. Yet these are often the most important conversations to have in order to build and maintain trusting relationships with families.
Topics we find challenging to discuss can include child behaviors we find difficult, concerns about a child’s development, family member interactions, and child and family well-being. In this three-part webinar workshop series, we will explore how our perspectives and roles may influence our understanding of those of the children, families, and colleagues we work with. And we’ll reflect together on how our experiences, and our backgrounds – racial, cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, educational, and more - shape our perspectives and assumptions, affecting when and how we experience conversations as challenging. We will practice applying a strengths-based approach to effectively engage in challenging conversations.
Come explore why these topics are hard for professionals and families. Learn how we can use perspective-taking to promote productive conversations about challenging topics that strengthen our relationships with the children, families, and colleagues we work with.
