The American Academy of Pediatrics is hosting a webinar that may be of great interest to Network faithful. If you are interested in learning about strategies for coaching families and modeling positive parenting in the Medical Home, be sure to put this one down on your calendar.

A nurturing relationship between a parent and child is an important buffer against toxic stress related to  exposure to violence. Health care providers can encourage positive parenting skills that foster nurturing relationships. This webinar will enable listeners to identify parenting practices that can build resilience in children exposed to violence, identify ways to model positive parenting practices in the medical home, and provide specific and practice guidance on parenting to families in the medical home setting. With support from the Department of Justice, The AAP Medical Home for Children Exposed to Violence is proud to present Kimberly Randell, MD, MSc, FAAP and Lisa Spector, MD, FAAP. Dr. Randell is a past co-chair and current member of Children’s Mercy Hospital’s Council on Violence Prevention and co-chairs the Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Work Group. Dr. Spector is the Medical Director of the Safe and Healthy Families (SAHF) Trauma Prevention and Treatment Program and Medical Director of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program at Children’s Mercy Hospital.
