Subject:Upcoming Webinar: Promoting Positive Child Development in Young Latino Children of Immigrants Involved with Child Protective Services

Please join us for an upcoming webinar, “Promoting Positive Child Development in Young Latino Children of Immigrants Involved with Child Protective Services” (flyer attached) Friday, February 27th from 12:30-2p.m. CST Among children who come to the attention of child protective services today, maltreated infants and toddlers are at the greatest risk of developmental delay and the largest age group entering foster care. Early intervention services can mitigate the negative effects of abuse and neglect and support children for healthy development. When compared to other racial/ethnic groups, Latino children tend to experience a disproportionate burden of developmental risk factors. Among Latinos, children of immigrants are particularly vulnerable to developmental risk given factors such as poorer health, diminished access to health insurance, and lower reported quality of health care when compared to children of U.S.-born parents. This free webinar focuses on promoting positive development in young Latino children of immigrants, one of the fastest growing racial/ethnic groups in the U.S. and in the U.S. child welfare system. The webinar will highlight promising practices for working collaboratively across child welfare and early intervention systems and with vulnerable Latino families. The webinar is FREE and CEU's are available where eligible. To register for this event visit: http://bit.ly/1EpdmLY *********************************** Michelle Johnson-Motoyama, Ph.D., M.S.W.
