HOW TO BECOME A NO HIT ZONE: CREATING SAFE ENVIRONMENTS FOR CHILDREN AT HOME AND IN THE COMMUNITY

What is a “No Hit Zone”? It’s a place, anywhere—a home, school, hospital, clinic, religious institution, or a neighborhood or community—that establishes an environment of comfort and safety for parents, families, and staff. Being a No Hit Zone means being committed to addressing the most prevalent risk factor for child abuse—corporal punishment—and promoting effective parenting techniques with strategies and resources that influence attitudes, norms, and behaviors.

In this three-part training, ISPCAN has partnered with Stacie LeBlanc and Randell Alexander of the National No Hit Zone Committee to introduce you to this comprehensive program, explain how to become a No Hit Zone, and impart key parenting practices that offer an effective alternative to corporal punishment.

ON DEMAND THE VOICE OF THE CHILD IN RESEARCH & POLICY

FREE FOR MEMBERS, $10 PER SESSION FOR NON-MEMBERS

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) mandates that children have the right to share freely what they think and feel. Around the world, upholding the voice of the child is increasingly recognized as important, particularly in the case of vulnerable children. Article 12 of the United Nations CRC gives children the right to have their views given due weight in all matters affecting them. This two-part training will provide practical steps for researchers and child advocates, with respect to privileging the voices of children and young people in the context of research and policy. We will explore the key elements of Article 12- Space, Voice, Audience and Influence.

The sessions are free for members and $10 per session for nonmembers. If you are a member, make sure you are logged in before you order.

Session 2: Achieving Best Practice with Respect to Activating Children’s Voices in Research

In this session, leading researchers discuss the ethical landscape of doing research with children and young people that facilitates their voices. They encourage researchers to find pathways to produce knowledge on ‘children’s own perspectives on their everyday lives and experiences’ and move away from merely fulfilling institutional review board requirements towards an ethics of fairness, an ethics of inclusion and an ethics of producing potential new worlds where children and young people are valued and respected.

ON DEMAND IDENTIFYING & RESPONDING TO THE TORTURE OF CHILDREN: A 4-PART SERIES FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

FREE EVENT / CME CREDITS AVAILABLE

Healthcare providers across the globe are responding to calls to aid children who are the victims of violence and armed conflicts, have been displaced, are seeking refuge, and/or are in need of humanitarian care for many other reasons. Many of these children have experienced significant physical and emotional trauma—some of which rises to the level of “cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment,” or torture. Most health responders in these settings lack the knowledge, expertise, and experience to identify, document, and respond to the physical and emotional needs of these children and report their findings.

In this 4-module, 6-hour training, presented in partnership with ISSOP (the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health), the University of Florida College of Medicine, and the University of California San Francisco Health & Human Rights Initiative, global experts share how to recognize, document, and report the torture of children; the legal and human rights perspectives; the mental health effects; and the role of international organizations and other stakeholders in establishing a coordinated, sustained global initiative to stop the cruel, inhuman, and demeaning violence and torture of children. CME credits (1.5 per module) are available from the University of Florida College of Medicine. Please click on the link below to learn more.

ON DEMAND THE VOICE OF THE CHILD IN PRACTICE

FREE FOR MEMBERS, $20 PER SESSION FOR NON-MEMBERS

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child mandates that children have the right to share what they think and feel and to be listened to and taken seriously. Upholding the voice of the child has increasingly been recognized as important; however, despite protocols supporting the CRC policy, there is evidence that children’s voices often remain unheard in the child protection process. This two-part training will share practical guidelines for talking with children and capturing their voices; ways to engage with children in various contexts; and ways to incorporate best practices in your daily practice as a frontline practitioner.

The sessions are free for members and $20 for nonmembers. If you are a member, make sure you are logged in before you order. Registration is a two-step process: After you sign up here on the website, an Order Confirmation will appear on your screen which will include a link to register on Zoom. After you register on Zoom, you will receive an email with your unique link to join.
