Two Upcoming Pyramid Model Training Events for Infant and Early Childhood Professionals!
The Wisconsin Alliance for Infant Mental Health and The Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership are offering two Pyramid Model training events in November:
November 12, 2018: Parents Interacting with Infants
The Pyramid Model Infant Toddler parent module focuses on enhancing the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers by expanding on and strengthening parent-child interactions and relationships. While the primary emphasis is on parent-child groups, the module also addresses how the model can be applied to home visiting.
Participants of this workshop will learn:
¨ The characteristics and strategies of dyadic interactions
¨ Information and strategies for facilitators to support and enhance dyadic interaction (triadic support)
¨ Information and strategies for facilitators to support parents as observers (Developmental Observation Topic and Environmental plan)
This workshop session is most applicable for individuals who have responsibility to support parents in parenting practices through parenting groups, parent/child playgroups or home visits.
November 13, 2018: Positive Solutions for Families: Trainer of Facilitators
This is a trainer of facilitators on the Wisconsin updated Positive Solutions for Families content. The training materials provide information for families on how to promote children’s social and emotional skills, understand their child’s challenging behavior, and use positive approaches to help children learn appropriate behavior. The Positive Solutions for Families content is designed to be delivered in 5-6 weeks of face to face parent networking sessions. The content aligns with Wisconsin’s Pyramid Model training for teachers and has been updated to align with other Wisconsin information.
This workshop session is for anyone who has a responsibility of providing parent education and availability to facilitate parent groups. Participants who attend this training will be able to train parents in evidence based practices to promote social emotional development and therefore decrease challenging behavior.
