This workshop has been developed for educators, early childhood interventionists and providers across disciplines.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Too often, we view a young person’s behavioral differences as items on a checklist rather than understanding that observed behaviors are a way of adapting to how the individual processes information and the impact of their environment. That impact is particularly true for young people today during the pandemic, those who manage sensory and executive functioning challenges, autistic youth, and individuals experiencing trauma. This virtual workshop provides an opportunity to learn more about the concepts from brain science that help us understand why some young people experience high rates of behavioral challenges and what we can do differently to better support them. Dr. Delahooke will describe behaviors as the tip of the “Developmental Iceberg” and essential signals that we should address by seeking to understand a young person’s individual differences in the overarching context of relational safety.
This workshop will provide helpful worksheets and charts for educators, early childhood interventionists, and providers across disciplines, including tools and techniques to reduce behavioral challenges and promote psychological resilience and satisfying, secure relationships.
1. Learn about the paradigm shift that is beginning across the country based on neuroscience research of the past decade.
2. Understand the four states of the nervous system that inform us what to do in real-time when managing a young person’s behavioral challenges.
3. Understand how neurodevelopment progresses along a predictable trajectory.
4. Learn how to contextualize your current intervention approaches to align with each young person’s neurodevelopmental ability.
Free to Attend
Clock Hours are available in partnership with OSPI

Even when intention is not malicious, bias can have a profound negative effect on the well-being of our colleagues and the people we serve in public health practice.
Even when intention is not malicious, bias can have a profound negative effect on the well-being of our colleagues and the people we serve in public health practice.
The January session of Hot Topics in Practice will share how organizations can help address racial bias using the “Racial Justice Competency Model for Public Health Professionals” that will be available from the Public Health Training Centers (PHTC).
This one-hour webinar will support public health professionals in advocating for and implementing the Racial Justice Competency Model, while showing how creating a sense of belonging can be central in your efforts. This presentation is intended to help you understand the Racial Justice Competency Model, how it came to be, future plans for the model, and how your organization can eventually put it into practice to better serve your organization, partners, and communities.
Addressing racial bias and creating a sense of belonging must be intentional and woven into everyday practices. Register today to learn how.

Buffering Intergenerational Trauma: Child Well-Being and Community-Based Resilience is scheduled for Tuesday, February 1, kicking off (virtually) at 10:00 a.m. PST.
We are thrilled to present developmental scientist Dr. Kandace Thomas as the featured speaker. Passionately committed to her work at the intersection of research, policy, and practice in the field of early childhood and infant mental health, her focus is squarely on racial and social justice. Dr. Thomas is nationally recognized for her innovative work in child development, diversity-informed practice, and mindfulness. She brings an array of strength and community-based research and practices to support children and families – and those who work with them.
We are delighted that Dr. Benjamin Danielson, uncommon community leader and pediatrician extraordinaire, will join our gathering once again. We look forward to Dr. Ben’s keen ability to help us examine this time we are collectively experiencing. Dr Ben will offer thoughts regarding a focus on community abundance rather than only deficits and scarcity. He’ll lead a panel from the community to share their insights and examples of community-centered practices that promote resilience. They include Shivon Brite from Empire Health Foundation, Keoki Kauanoe from Family Education & Support Services, and Dr. Kristina Lovato from California State University.
Attendees will come away inspired and equipped with tools, practices, and strategies for facilitating healing and building resilience. We can’t wait to welcome you to this year’s gathering on February 1!

This 90 minute interactive SSIR Live! webinar will address this how our sector can accelerate BIPOC executive leadership development by analyzing an often overlooked factor in the dominant model of leadership development: the expectation that organizations develop talent on their own, in an ad hoc manner, and with an individualistic framework.
This 90 minute interactive SSIR Live! program will:
• Explore the critical need in the social sector to develop the next generation of BIPOC executive leaders
• Present an innovative new model to do so that has already produced game-changing results in the Bay Area
• Share the key design elements of this collaborative and cohort-based approach
• Contextualize these insights for program participants to apply in their own communities
Presented by Curtis Chang, Adriana Caldera Boroffice, and Regina Williams
Moderated by Aaron Bady
Cost: $69 but you can also access a recording of the webinar for up to a year

2022 Western Forum for Migrant and Community Health
This year’s Western Forum theme: “Adelante: Building Resilience & Strength for a Healthy & Just Recovery” recognizes the journey, the work, the innovation, and the sacrifices we have made over the past couple years by our frontline colleagues, communities, and partners. It’s also a promise to the future. A promise to build resilience from adversity, to nurture strength from loss, and to commit to create a more just and healthy community. Our frontline community health center and community-based organizations embody the spirit of “Adelante” – optimism, grit, resilience, and compassion. This year’s theme is dedicated to all of our frontline colleagues, the workforce that kept our families informed, safe, and optimistic of the healthy and just world we are striving toward.
