MK/TCK Caregiver Training Seminar 2019
November 17 @ 5:00 pm - November 20 @ 5:00 pm
This three-day interactive seminar held in West Michigan is for those just stepping into new responsibilities as an MK/TCK caregiver or for those who have been working in this area, but want to reevaluate their program and develop new tools. The seminar will support new MK/TCK caregivers develop a sustainable program, prioritize needs, and build vision within their organization for MK/TCK care. Seminar facilitators will outline key issues regarding MKs’/TCKs’ identity, the transition experience, the flow of care, important steps in assessing needs and developing a program, educational options, and their implications for MK/TCK care programs. The seminar will help experienced caregivers expand their programs, reevaluate what they are doing (with outside perspectives) and set new priorities. (It is assumed that participants will have read Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds by David C. Pollock, Ruth Van Reken, and Michael Pollock).
Whether a new or experienced MK/TCK caregiver, this seminar will help participants to sharpen their skills, enhance their program, clarify their goals and set new priorities in providing crucially needed services to both children and parents. Participants will receive a notebook of resources and activities which will support them with practical ideas, strategies and resources to enhance their caregiver efforts.
