This 3-hour live workshop will explore the developmental consequences of parental incarceration for infants and young children. We’ll consider how the incarceration of a parent –– and co-occurring Adverse Childhood Experiences –– can compromise healthy social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. The workshop will also address ways to support relationships between incarcerated parents and their infants and young children.
Live online webinar via Zoom. This sponsor is in Minnesota, so the training occurs very early morning in Alaska. The event will be recorded and available for 30 days following the event.
