Two new Effective Black Parenting instructor training workshops in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles have been scheduled!
The workshop in DC will take place the week of October 24-28, 2016. It will be held at Children’s National Medical Center, 111 Michigan Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20010. It will be led by Ruth M. Rich, M.A., who has taught numerous classes and seminars in the Effective Black Parenting Program.
There are openings in that workshop. The enrollment fee is $1395 for the five days of professional training. The fee includes a complete Kit of educational materials to use in running classes in this evidence-based program, and certification to conduct classes.
To enroll please contact Mr. Samuel Tramel, the Executive Director of the DC Children’s Trust Fund. He can be reached at (202) 299-0900 Ext. 24 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Children’s Trust Fund is partnering with CICC in organizing and running this workshop.
The upcoming workshop in Los Angeles is scheduled for September 19-23, 2016 and it is sold out. It is being sponsored by Shields for Families and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
The new workshops are following on the heels of two very successful workshops which were conducted on August 24-28, 2016 in the Los Angeles area. Both of those workshops were supported by the County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and two local non-profits, Shields for Families and Prototypes. Both were attended by service providing personnel from child welfare agencies.
The accompanying photo was taken at the graduation of the workshop that Shields for Families sponsored. In the middle of the first row is Dr. Alvy, CICC’s Founder and Executive Director, and next to Dr. Alvy, wearing the beautiful medallion, is Ms. Ida Collier, CICC’s National Trainer who led that workshop.
Below is a link to the video of the graduates speaking about the impact the workshop and the program had on them.
It’s worth taking the time to view the entire video because their comments are both powerful and poignant. They share how they have begun to successfully use the workshop skills and ideas with their clients and their own family members.
