Resources to Support Trainers

     The BC Healthy Child Development Alliance (BCHCDA), in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada, has developed a series of training materials on 'Social and Emotional Development in the Early Years'. This suite of multimedia resources tools is designed to be given by a trainer to an audience of professionals. The presenter using these slides is expected to have training in infant mental health and / or early childhood development. The content includes:
    • Typical social emotional development in the early years (0-3)
    • Signs that additional support may be needed
    • Strategies to promote healthy social emotional development

BULLETIN ON EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT DECEMBER 2013

The Best ECD Research in Canada 2011-12

Celebrating the best ECD scientific publications by Canadian investigators is always
a gratifying experience. This year, however, the pleasure is clouded by the untimely
death of Clyde Hertzman, a long-time compagnon de route of the CEECD and the
SKC-ECD. Clyde was a leading scholar, and an amazing mover and shaker of the ECD
community in Canada and abroad. We dedicate this Top 10 issue to his memory.

 

   

FRAMEWORKS INSTITUTE REPORT JULY 2013

"Handed to Them on a Plate": Frameworks Institute July 2013 Research Report

FrameWorks was engaged by the National Human Services Assembly (NHSA), with support from the Kresge Foundation, to explore how various ways of reframing the sector could improve public understanding and unite the field around core concepts. This multi-method collaborative project is designed to test communications strategies that can be used by members of the field to generate a broader public understanding of what the field is and does, and, in turn, increase public support for the policies and programs necessary to improve the effectiveness of human services in the United States.
