Race and Equity in Child and Family Serving Systems - June 2020
The presenter, Brenda J. Allen (PhD, Professor Emerita) is a former Chief Diversity Officer (University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus) and author of Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to focus on race and equity in child and family serving systems has been magnified. As employees within those systems strive to address that need, they also must adjust their ways of working. This webinar focuses on ways that employees can cultivate equity and inclusion among themselves, in order to better serve children and families. The importance of equity and inclusion to child- and family- serving systems and workers is discussed. Dr. Allen explores how race and equity matter in the workplace (in-person and virtually). She shares strategies for how workers can better support one another by being more equity-minded.

Minding the Implementation Gap: Variability in Fidelity Measurement and Pre-implementation Supports within Evidence-Based Psychosocial Treatments - May 2020
The presenter, Cricket Mitchell, PhD, is a clinical research psychologist with 15 years of experience as a research, evaluation, and implementation consultant. Evidence-based psychosocial treatments are heavily featured in recent legislation, including the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2018. While proliferation of such interventions holds promise for improving behavioral health, there is a well-documented 'voltage drop' in effectiveness once interventions are transported outside of research studies. Further, many implementation efforts fail altogether. Using programs rated by the CEBC, this presentation explores the extent to which program purveyors leverage implementation science to support implementation efforts.

Working with Gender-Expansive and Transgender Children - March 2020
In this webinar, Darlene Tando, LCSW, who is a gender therapist, educator, ally, and advocate, explores how it is crucial to have a compassionate understanding of how one’s gender identity or gender expression and how it impacts the gender-expansive and transgender child and their ability to be authentic. In this webinar, participants are taught (or able to review) basic language for discussing and understanding gender-expansive and or transgender youth and the differences between and interactions of various aspects of children’s gender identity and gender expression. The concept of gender dysphoria, how it impacts transgender youth, and interventions available to them including social transition and beyond are explored. Most importantly, the best ways to support, affirm, and advocate for these young individuals are described.
