Putting Caregivers First: From Bench to Practice
September 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
On behalf of the Committee on Science and Practice, we are excited to share that The Education Committee of the Caregiver Wellbeing SIG will host an SPP sponsored webinar titled “Putting Caregivers First: From Bench to Practice”.
This webinar will present exciting caregiver wellbeing research and provide practical guidance for translating caregiver wellbeing science into practice. Our research presentations by Dr. Randi Streisand and Dr. Bob Ammerman will highlight their recent work in developing and testing innovative caregiver interventions in pediatric settings, while Dr. Naomi Joffe and Dr. Lauren Szulczewski will guide us through the implementation of their Caregiver Mental Health Program and integration of evidence-based caregiver interventions into routine clinical practice. Finally, Blyth Lord, Founder and Executive Director of the Courageous Parents Network, will share her experience and expertise in supporting caregivers through community engagement and advocating for evidence-based caregiver practices.
Webinar structure will be a 10-minute introduction to caregiver wellbeing, followed by four 20-minute presentations, wrap-ups, and time for Q&A.
