Someone to Listen: Supporting the Well-Being of Home-Based Child Care Providers
October 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
This training will acquaint home-based child care providers with a new worker-focused mental health support through 4-C. The Early Childhood Workforce Program is sensitive to the feelings of isolation that can be experienced by home-based child care providers. It validates the unique physical and emotional challenges associated with their work and offers support in addressing those challenges. This training will explore how the program provides a confidential space for home-based professionals to discuss personal and professional stressors, allows time to reflect on their emotions, and supports them in problem solving. Training participants will learn how reflective consultation can help increase their coping capacity, positively impact quality of child interactions, and decrease professional burnout. Open discussion will be encouraged. There will be question/answer time offered during the training.
