Impacts of Poverty on Students & Families: Poverty 101

April 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is the rescheduled training from March 18th, presented by Elin MacKinnon, LCSW,  and designed for staff at all levels in Family Futures Downeast partner organizations featuring scenarios and content consistent with 2Gen approaches with a specific focus on Washington County early and higher education.  At the conclusion of this training, participants will understand:
• The various types of poverty
• How poverty is measured
• How social policy and poverty are linked
• Links between ACES, toxic stress and poverty
• Poverty and the science of resiliency
• Best practice responses to poverty
This training is an introduction (101 version) to poverty and its impacts. Participants who are formal partners providing supports to the FFD program and have attended a poverty training led by Elin Mackinnon, LCSW or Julie Redding, LCPC,  have already met the FFD training requirement for Poverty 101. Staff from other CCC partner organizations who find this relevant to their work are welcome to attend. The training will be held from 9 am to 12 noon in Science 102 at the University of Maine, Machias.  Please fill out the registration below to claim your seat. We are not offering a  remote connection with the media room at Washington County Community College for this rescheduled event.  However, a webinar version of this training is being developed and will be offered shortly.  Look for announcements in the CCC’s Wednesday Communique (subscribe here).  The registration form below is only for the April 1st training at UMM.
