On February 16, 2022, organizations participating in the Resilient Beginnings Network (RBN) and Amplify Healing Connections programs attended a full-day virtual workshop on Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences (HOPE). During this workshop, participants received guidance on implementing a strengths-based approach that identifies, celebrates, and promotes access to key Positive Childhood experiences for families in the community.
The day kicked-off with an hour-long HOPE 101 session for those who were newer to the model or those who wanted to brush up on the framework prior to diving into practice. The remainder of the day was a mix of group conversation, breakout groups, and guided HOPEful activities with a focus on creating HOPEful practice for those who work directly with children.
