Upcoming Training Opportunity: ACT Facilitator Training!

19 Apr 2017 9:06 AM | Maggie Devlin (Administrator)

ACT Raising Safe Kids Facilitator Training
hosted by Child Advocacy of Gratiot County

The ACT Program is a good fit for those interested in helping families provide healthy, nurturing environments for their children. ACT is a parenting program for parents and caregivers of children aged 8 and younger. It was developed and is directed by the American Psychological Association. Participants in the 2-day ACT workshop learn to conduct an evidence-based, nine-session parent training program designed to prevent child maltreatment, build parents’ positive, nonviolent parenting skills, and mobilize communities and families to protect children from violence. 

Those interested in conducting the program's nine-week sessions for parents and caregivers in their communities need to go through the training and certification processes to become an ACT facilitator. The cost of training is $300 and includes the facilitator kit and lunch. View more information about the training here.

Applications must be submitted by Friday, April 21st. Download the application here.

All questions regarding this training can be sent to Morgan Rooy at morgan@linkforfamilies.org.
