Touchpoints is both an approach to working with families AND a guide to predictable developmental challenges to parent-child relationships. This strength-based, culturally sensitive model was developed by Dr. T. Berry Brazelton in Boston a few decades ago and has transformed family support practices across the country. The free workshop will address the needs of two professional audiences – those who want an introduction to the Touchpoints approach and those who have completed Touchpoints training in the past but need a refresher. The workshop activities will open a window into the Touchpoints philosophy and provide an opportunity to grow and reflect on our professional practices with families. Sue Carpenter, United Way for Greater Austin, will facilitate this short, interactive, session. Note: This is not a replacement for the formal Touchpoints training, which is a 3-day intensive workshop.
All participants will receive a Touchpoints book – which will be distributed from the UW office when it is safe to do so.
Space limited to 35 participants who work with families with children ages 0-5.
You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: Aug 5, 2020 09:00 AM Central Time (US and Canada) Topic: Touchpoints Training
