CDC Hosts Webinar to Discuss Essentials for Childhood
February 26, 2013 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Please join us for a discussion of Essentials for Childhood: Steps to Create Safe, Stable, and Nurturing Relationships for Children
Date: Tuesday, February 26th
Time: 3–4pm EST
Child abuse and neglect poses serious threats to the health, well-being, and safety of our nation’s children. Preventing child maltreatment is a priority of CDC’s Injury Center. We believe safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments (SSNRs) are essential to prevent child maltreatment and to ensure children reach their full potential.
Last month the Injury Center’s Division of Violence Prevention released a new document, Essentials for Childhood: Steps to Create Safe, Stable, and Nurturing Relationships for Children. Essentials for Childhood is intended for anyone committed to the positive development of children and families, and specifically to the prevention of all forms of child abuse and neglect.
In this webinar we’ll share:
- Information on goals and related steps outlined in this new resource;
- Strategies communities can consider to promote the types of relationships and environments that help children grow up to be healthy and productive citizens; and
- Community examples of work done to address the four goals outlined in Essentials for Childhood.
- Sandra Alexander, MEd—Expert Consultant; Division of Violence Prevention, CDC
- Jody Becker-Green, PhD, MSW—Chief Knowledge Officer, Planning, Performance, and Accountability; Washington State Department of Social and Health Services
- Karina Forrest-Perkins—Chief Executive Officer; Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota
