The Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program is hosting a training of interest to volunteer guardians ad litem, caregivers and staff.

Join us on Thursday, March 13, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at our offices for The Importance of Early Relationships.

How caregivers support the emotional wellbeing of a child is important and the results are long-lasting. It is ultimately through these interactions that a child learns that they are valued and loved. Unfortunately, the situation can be quite different for children who have been neglected, receive inconsistent messages or have been exposed to domestic violence and trauma.

Presented by Laurie McCort, LCSW, MPH, this training will explore how individuals are shaped by their early relationships. Learn the basic terminology used by infant mental health specialists to describe these relationships and explore how guardians ad litem and therapists can work more closely to support children.

Participants may receive one (1) hour of continuing education credit. Afterward, report your hours quickly and easily using our eForm.

The training is free. You can download the event flyer and register with the event contact below.

We hope to see you there!
