is pleased to be able to offer

Train the Trainer

August 9th and 10th

Two- day Mentor Training to train mentors who work with children of incarcerated parents and family members.

Curriculum: The Mentoring training curriculum is designed to prepare staff to train mentors to have the kind of relationship that can contribute to the coping process for young people who experience the incarceration of a parent of close family member. The goal of the training is to build a base of understanding and awareness that includes information about the impact of parental/family incarceration on child development, family dynamics, and parent- child relationships. The curriculum can be used to train any mentor/volunteers working with children of the incarcerated.

Dates:  August 9 and 10th 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day (lunch provided)

She is a child and family therapist in Jenkintown, PA and has for the last 30 years, been an author, trainer and advocate focused on improving responses to and changing systems that serve children and families of the incarcerated.  Because of the generous support from Pioneer, Creative Visions is able to offer this unique training opportunity for $35.00 per attendee.  The cost will cover the 2 days training, continental breakfast and lunch.  Plus your agency will receive a copy of Mentoring Children of Prisoners Curriculum that your trained staff will be able to use to train current and prospective mentors. Space is limited to 24 participants and registration is on a first come basis.
