In these trying times with families spending so much extra time at home with physical distancing, distance learning, remote work, etc. parents are strained more than ever.
PAX Tools is something that can help! PAX Tools is a collection of evidence-based, trauma-informed strategies for caregivers to improve cooperation and self-regulation with children. PAX Tools draws on decades of science to create strategies that support parent/caregivers to create a nurturing environment that ultimately helps kids thrive!
Kristen Smith, Prevention Coordinator for Envision Partnerships, is a trained PAX Tools Community Educator. She will be offering a virtual format for the PAX Tools Workshop.
Monday, March 30, 4:00- 5:30 pm
This workshop aims to help parents/caregivers in limiting problematic behaviors and reinforcing prosocial behaviors with their children, creating a home environment that is not just surviving but thriving! Caregivers who participate in this virtual workshop will receive the materials they need to effectively use PAX Tools with children, including the PAX Tools App
