Training Description

At least 300,000 children in the State of Florida have at least one incarcerated parent. In this workshop, participants will learn the impacts of incarceration on early childhood and brain development. Research-based interventions and case studies will be explored through various case studies and family trees. Toward the end of the workshop, participants will engage in small and large group discussions about systemic changes needed to create local systems of care for this vulnerable population.
