Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences (HOPE)
Community of Practice
Originally presented on
March 2 & 23, 2022
Understanding that we learn and thrive best in community, this series of two sessions is an opportunity for those who have been introduced to the HOPE (Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences) framework to gather and support each other in ongoing learning and implementation. During the sessions we will facilitate questions to further understanding of the framework, how to implement the framework, and what it looks like to be “HOPE informed.” We hope you will join us as we take steps to ground ourselves in this strengths-based perspective that supports our communities’ ability to thrive.
Who Should Attend: Staff of family resource centers, child abuse prevention councils, and other child and family-serving organizations who have had previous training in the HOPE framework through: 1) Attending a HOPE training through CalTrin, HOPE, or another organization partnering with HOPE, 2) Taking the HOPE online training.
