Course Instructor - Laura Hinds, Cross-Systems Training Institute
Healthy child development is a challenging goal for families and children with stable environments and social supports. In contrast, the barriers and pitfalls that impact homeless children and families can have devastating effects on a child’s learning, social-emotional health, and academic achievement. This workshop seeks to clarify the impact of homelessness on children. It will also provide practical strategies to support and enhance a child’s learning experience.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Identify the varying types and experiences of homelessness
- Define the challenges that disrupt healthy development
- Use practical strategies that can be supportive for homeless children and families
Training provided by the Health Federation of Philadelphia's Multiplying Connections Initiative through a grant from Philadelphia Health Management Corporation's (PHMC) Southeast Regional Key (SERK) Program
