Focus on Social & Behavioral Health Training

from Sussex Health Promotion Coalition

SCHPC is proud to announce the workshop schedule for the 7th annual Summer Childcare Training, hosted by Early Learning Action Team on August 13th, 2015 6:30-9:30pm. Previously coined the Fun, Fitness & Literacy Training, this year’s training will focus on the targeted needs of special populations and managing behaviors derivative of early trauma. The training is one of a kind in Sussex County for Early Care and Education Directors, Teachers and Family Child Care Providers. The Early Learning Action Team is committed to offering a low cost training for local providers, including dinner and bringing in quality trainers and keeping the content relevant. SCHPC is offering a OCCL-eligible 3 hour track including a 1.5 hour Autism Spectrum Disorder course hosted by Autism Delaware and a 1.5 hour course focusing on child behavior and trauma, taught by Dr. Julius Mullen.

This year’s training is offering a special training offering for administrators and directors hosted by Executive Coach Mark Thorn. This special training includes taking the Meyers-Briggs personality test and reviewing results and incorporating them into leading a childcare center with staff, children and parents. SCHPC is looking forward to a great turnout with the training’s capacity at 60 people. The training will be held in the P.A.C.T.T. center located inside Sussex Tech in Georgetown on August 13th 6:30-9:30pm.
