Further Discussion of Cross-systems Parenting Initiatives
January 11, 2010
This call is the first in a series of conference calls designed to increase the value of each NCCP-hosted webinar to ECCS stakeholders. After each webinar, NCCP will host follow-up conference calls on the same topic. The follow-up calls will focus primarily on answering questions that may have come up since the event. This new model is meant to encourage cross-systems communication and allow ECCS stakeholders the opportunity to discuss pursuing opportunities presented in the webinar with partners and others in the ECCS community.
Susan Perkins and Michelle Gross of the New York State Parenting Education Partnership (NYSPEP) will answer any questions that listeners may have related to their wonderful presentation during the December 9th Project Thrive webinar.
Melanie Bronfin from Louisiana's ECCS initiative--BrightStart-- will tell us about their efforts to make parenting a priority at the state level, including the formation of the Louisiana Parenting Education Network (LAPEN), an association of professional parenting educators.
K. Vilay of First Things First Arizona will speak about the ECCS initiative's progress in distributing Parent Kits and related efforts at regional and state levels.
You may watch and listen to the entire call at the WebEx website. The call is 57 minutes.
