The Main Event:
Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) librarians Merri Lindgren and Megan Schliesman will talk about Great New Books for Children, and Great New Books for Older Children and Teens, highlighting selected books from CCBC Choices 2018. All books included in CCBC Choices 2018 will be available for hands-on examination.
The Five Protective Factors
Protective factors are conditions that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. These attributes serve as buffers, helping caregivers find resources, support, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress. Research has shown that the protective factors are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect. Attend this session to identify strategies to strengthen families who have experienced stress & challenging life situations, and to infuse those strategies into your everyday practice.
2017 Youth Services Institute Cohort sharing time
While you're enjoying lunch, members of the 2017 Youth Services Institute Cohort will provide an informal sharing time, where they'll talk about what they learned, and let us know ways we can help them succeed in their plans and goals.
A single copy of CCBC Choices 2018 has been sent to each public library in Wisconsin, and we expect to have additional copies for workshop attendees.
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Manitowoc-Calumet Library System, Nicolet Federated Library System, Outagamie Waupaca Library System, and Winnefox Library System.
