Upcoming Events

Support Over Silence

Dr. Nancy Weaver will discuss how to apply communication sciences, analytics, and public health principles to promote healthy and positive parenting to reduce the prevalence of childhood abuse and neglect. During this webinar, she’ll discuss Support Over Silence for KIDS, which teaches bystanders the skills for responding to struggles between caregivers and children in public. Dr. Weaver created this program to educate community members on how to listen empathetically and non-judgmentally to parents and caregivers in tense situations to help deescalate what’s happening in the moment.
 

Nancy L. Weaver, PhD, MPH, is a Professor of Behavioral Science at Saint Louis University. She blends communication science, analytics, and public health principles to support institutions in adopting effective public health programs. Whether encouraging nurturing relationships between parents and kids, or coaching instructors in best practices for connecting with their students online, she advances strength-based messages that are easy to understand and tools that are easy to apply.

She launched Support Over Silence for KIDS to provide communities with bystander training to support parents struggling with their children in public. Dr. Weaver is Co-director of the Community Engagement Core of the Center for Innovation in Child Maltreatment at Washington University and works in partnership with community organizations across the country.

Current laws and policies regarding the care and treatment of children separated from their parents often land these families in the legal system as they struggle with alternative parenting plans, the termination of parental rights, and immigration issues. The science regarding attachment spotlights the lasting influence of these children’s experiences. In this program, Drs. Jody Todd Manly, Mt. Hope Family Center’s Clinical Director, and Catherine Cerulli, an attorney and current Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Center and the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization, will share and translate evidence-based information regarding the consequences of parent-child separation into practical tools for lawyers. They will also share interviewing techniques and basic principles of trauma-informed lawyering skills needed when dealing with children and parents who have experienced separation.
