Oct2022.I Hear You: Active Listening to Engage Families

Wednesday, October 26, 2022 1:00 PM ET

Learning from families about what is happening in their lives is crucial to being able to support them. However, sometimes it takes time for families to tell us what is going on. This is where active listening can help. When we listen to understand what is most important to the family, we can join with families in their hopes, dreams, and goals for their child. In this webinar, we explore some specific listening techniques that can help providers deepen their connections with families.

This course is a part of the Strengths-Based Family Engagement Workshop Series. Building relationships with families is one of the most important things that a provider can do in supporting both the child and their family. Yet, building collaborative, trusting relationships is not always easy. Research shows that using a strengths-based approach to family engagement supports the well-being of the family.

In this series, you will learn strategies that you can immediately apply to your work to further cultivate a strengths-based mindset in your work with families. Each workshop is 1.5 hours, and participants receive a certificate of attendance. Register for each webinar individually or sign up for the whole series.
