Promoting First Relationships in Child Care Workshop



This workshop is being rescheduled for Fall 2016.  Please check back in August for new dates.  Thank you.

In this new 1-day workshop, you will learn about the principles developed in the Promoting First Relationships® (PFR) Program. This is an evidence based program which has shown to be effective in home visiting service provision.

This workshop, geared toward the needs of those who provide child care for young children, will focus on:

  • how babies communicate non-verbally
  • the importance of the relationship between providers and children and how to nurture this relationship,
  • how to understand and reframe challenging behaviors,
  • how to use Promoting First Relationships to formulate a plan for addressing difficult child behavior in the child care setting.

Fee covers tuition, Promoting First Relationships caregiver manual, and a CD with reproducible parent handouts. This workshop will be available for STARS credit.
