Avenues for Advocacy: Multidisciplinary Approach to Child Advocacy in the Shenandoah Valley

New!

Too often, children face trauma that remains unresolved creating barriers to becoming  a contributing adult within the community. This course explores the community’s role in strengthening the child’s successes in sustaining a high quality of life by understanding what it means to be a child advocate. Participants will examine how a multidisciplinary approach theory has been put into practice in the surrounding community and the many ways each resident can be a part of this effort. Join me for a roundtable discussion learning how to use your passion to advocate for a child. Note: This course does not meet on Wednesday, November 21.
