Health care, early childhood, home-visiting, child-protection, and mental health providers are often on the front line when responding to the most critical needs of vulnerable and underserved families with young children, including during pregnancy. Often, these families face significant trauma and adversity in their lives.
Agencies and institutions in Alaska must support providers to practice ethically and competently with Alaska's diverse families. Reflective Supervision/Consultation (RSC) is an evidence-based practice to support direct service providers and their managers in engaging families and promoting parent-child relationships as the basis of developmental resilience. RSC fosters a reflective, resilient, trauma-engaged, diversity-informed, effective workforce.
In this training, participants will learn:
Participants will also practice using tools to support reflective practice.
