Families are a vital part of a child's development and education. In order to encourage familial engagement, participants will be encouraged to reflect on current practices, cultural humility, personal bias, and strategies for engagement. Additionally, participants will identify the benefits of true engagement and how it differs from involvement and also identify ideas to help families engage. Participants will be paired with ECMH consultants to work on strategic planning for implementing change in their own environments while maintaining a strengths based perspective.
