Raising of America Episode 3: Are We Crazy About Our Kids? Screening & Discussion
Tuesday, March 14th, 2017, 5:30 – 7 PM
Science shows that a child’s experiences during the early years are vital to building the foundation for future success – in school and in life. Now economists are studying the costs and benefits of high-quality early care and preschool. And they’re worried—not because we’re spending too much but because we’re investing too little where it matters most. The evidence is so compelling it leaves us to wonder what is preventing the U.S. from investing more in its youngest children—and what are we willing to do about it. Come join us as we watch the Raising of America episode, “Are We Crazy About Our Kids?” as we discuss our country’s investment in quality child care and what we can do about it. 1.5 CEUs (Category II only) Register here.
Engaging Families in the Mental Health Process

Thursday, April 6th, 2017, 10 AM – 12 PM
As technology is constantly evolving, we must stay well-informed of all the dangers that threaten adults and children. This course will drive home a constant theme to take into consideration and to reiterate to children that everything we post on the Internet is both public and permanent. We will also discuss Internet technology that children have easy access to and ideas on how to neutralize the dangers they can sometimes pose. 2 CEUs. Register here.
Raising of America Episode 4: Wounded Places Screening & Discussion
Thursday, April 13th, 2017, 5:30 – 7 PM
Too many of our children, especially children of color living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, have endured trauma and show symptoms that look very much like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder — except there is no post. How might they and their neighborhoods heal? Come join us as we watch the Raising of America episode “Wounded Places” that addresses the issue of long-term impact of living in areas that disproportionately experience structural racism, poverty and violence. Discussion to follow. 1.5 CEUs (Category II only). Register here.
