Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all parenting.

We’ve said bye-bye to the limiting belief that a family has to look a certain way.

And, we’re over the idea that a parent should be judged for how they raise their child.

The Diversity in Parenting Speaker Series showcases the diverse landscape of modern parenting.

All month long, we’re talking to psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, licensed counselors, social workers, therapists, coaches, consultants, non-profit leaders and advocates who are sharing their ideas and best practices on how to:

  • Effectively Parent in Today’s Diverse World

  • Eliminate Stereotypes & Lead Non-Judgmental Discussions

  • Facilitate Innovative, Multicultural Interventions

  • Bring Cultural Competence to Working with Parents & Families

  • Use Family Theories in Your Work with Multidisciplinary Teams

If you’re ready for a fresh, new perspective which will uplevel your work with parents and families, then join us
