COMPLETED 1. What's Best for Kids: Weaving it All Together to Identify What Kids Really Need
Monday, July 10, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm | 6 CEHs | $179
Maple Grove Community Center, 12951 Weaver Lake Rd, Maple Grove, MN 55369
With all the research and practice recommendations for early childhood education programs it can be difficult to know what kids really need. CLASS, Circle of Security, Powerful Interactions, Conscious Discipline, Pyramid Model and Infant Mental Health all have recommendations about what's best for kids. Presenters will use their previous training and work experiences in early childhood education and mental health to weave together these resources to assist educators in their ability to provide a stable environment that promotes relationships so learning will flourish. Attendees will walk away with concrete strategies to reflect on their experiences and build confidence in knowing “what is best for kids.”

COMPLETED 2. Loss and Grief in Children
Tuesday, July 18, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | 3 CEHs | $89
Dakota Lodge, 1200 Stassen Ln, St Paul, MN 55118
Despite our understanding that what happens in the early years affects the course of development across the life span, the needs of children regarding grief and loss often continue to be under-recognized and poorly addressed. Children can experience many losses in their early years: perinatal loss, SIDS, foster placement, death of a parent, divorce, or something as simple as moving into a new home. This workshop will provide information on supporting grieving children in the work settings and suggestions for guiding parents.
  • Identify how children’s behavioral responses to grief and loss may present themselves based on their developmental age
  • Describe the number of families that are impacted by perinatal loss and how this can affect living siblings and those who follow
  • Learn supportive techniques and explore “protective parenting” behaviors

COMPLETED 3. Reflective Supervision for Interdisciplinary Infant and Early Childhood Professionals
Monday, August 14, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm | 6 CEHs | $179
Maplewood Community Center, 1200 White Bear Ave, Maplewood, MN 55109
Working effectively with young children and their families is relationship-based and requires us to engage our emotions as well as our intellect.  Reflective supervision, considered to be ‘best practice’ in interdisciplinary infant and early childhood work, involves attending to the feelings and experiences of the adults as well as those of the children because it is within these relationships where learning and change can take place.  This workshop will offer an overview of the principles and strategies of reflective supervision as well as an opportunity to think together about case material to experience reflective supervision and how it might support their work with young children and families and promote their own professional development.  
Michele Fallon, LICSW, IMH-E®(IV), Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant
COMPLETED 4. What Kids Need
Wednesday, August 16, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | 3 CEHs | $89
Bunker Hills Activity Center, 550 Bunker Lake Blvd NW, Andover, MN 55304
Worry is a part of everyday life, but when is worry too much for our youngest learners? In this workshop, the presenter will address this question and build an understanding of the key factors that influence a child’s stress/worry level. In addition, attendees will consider how the behavior of a worrier may be misinterpreted and practical ways to best meet the needs of children who are too stressed and worried to learn.
Angie Klinefelter, MS, IMH-E® (II), Instructor - CEED, Univ. Of MN
