The modality of the event is Face-to-face

The ACT Program - Parents Educating Children in Safe Environments, was developed and is coordinated by the Office of Violence Prevention of the American Psychological Association APA. Launched in 2001 and revised in 2006 and 2011, the ACT Program teaches positive skills for parents and caregivers of children from birth to 8 years of age.

The program is based on research showing that… • Early childhood is when children learn the basics of life.

• Parents and caregivers can be the best teachers and positive role models or those responsible for violence, abuse and neglect against their own children.

• Exposure to abuse and neglect early in life can have serious long-term emotional, cognitive and behavioral consequences for children and youth.

That is why…

• ACT focuses on the importance of the role of adults, transforming the environment and early experiences.
• ACT helps parents and caregivers build safe families that protect children from violence and its long-term consequences.

The course seeks to train professionals with the following skills:

All those professionals and organizations that work with families that are raising children between 0 to 8 years of age, such as Psychologists, family therapists, social workers, doctors and professionals who are related to the coordination and execution of the school program of fathers.

The training and certification of the ACT Program requires that future Facilitators meet the following requirements:

• Have a minimum of an undergraduate degree in the fields mentioned above.

• Have institutional support to deliver the ACT program in your organization and / or community.

• Have prior experience working with families and young children.

• Have prior knowledge of the ACT Program curriculum or content (http://www.apa.org/act/)

• Attend the two-day training (date to be defined)

• Offer the 8-week program to a group of parents after the training.
• Record ACT session 6 and send it to the ACT coordinators.
• Complete the program check list, do pre and post evaluation of the training carried out for parents and send it to the ACT coordinators "

The ACT Facilitator Training Workshop incorporates adult learning theory and an interactive, experiential format to engage practitioners in learning and practicing the content and concepts of the 9-session curriculum. The workshop includes a comprehensive review of the program materials and simulation of the activities outlined in the curriculum, which the participants will use with future parent groups.
