Strengthen everyday adult-child

Join us to learn more about Simple Interactions, an innovative, strength-based approach to professional development.

Presentations by Dr. Annie McNamara, Fred Rogers Institute

Intro to Simple Interactions

8:30am – 11:30am

How do we encourage, enhance, and empower the human relationships around children? Real and lasting change can start with finding what ordinary people do extraordinarily well with children in simple, everyday moments.

Simple Interactions is a practice-based, relationship-centered, and community-supported approach to focus quality improvement efforts on its most essential active ingredient: daily interactions between helpers and children.

Growing Simple Interactions Through Practice

12:00pm – 2:00pm

By capturing and learning from what ordinary people do extraordinarily well in simple, everyday moments, we can grow practice, nurture intuition into intention, and plant the seeds for sustainable change.

Participants will gain a deeper
understanding of the role of human interactions in child development and will identify simple moments as the catalyst for positive change in child-serving settings.
