The Devereux Center for Resilient children is thrilled to offer professional development on Your Journey Together! While the use of the Your Journey Together curriculum does not require professional development, there are a number of professional development options that can serve to maximize the understanding and use of the materials associated with the curriculum. To that end, the Devereux Center for Resilient Children offers several options for professional development to meet the wide-ranging needs of your local program/community.
Option 1: Recorded Webinar Training Series
This option offers access to a recorded webinar training series that provides background information on each of the four Your Journey Together modules. While the webinars do not review specific lessons found in the Your Journey Together Curriculum, they provide rich content pertaining to the resilience of children, adults, and care-giving environments that set the stage for using the curriculum with families.
Option 2: Author-Led Live Webinar on the Your Journey Together Curriculum
In this 2.5 hour live webinar, Deborah Alleyne, the lead author of YJT, will take participants through the implementation of the YJT Curriculum. Topics for this live session will include a walkthrough of sample lessons associated with each module, effectively using parent handouts and leave behind activities, and tips for effective coaching.
Option 3: Recorded Webinar Training Series and an Author-Led Live Webinar on the Your Journey Together Curriculum
This option offers access to the recorded webinars described above, along with a live 2.5 hour author-led webinar described above. Together, the recorded and live webinars offer a comprehensive look at the YJT content areas along with specific support from a YJT author regarding YJT Curriculum implementation.
Option 4: 1-Day Your Journey Together Training
This option would provide a live trainer qualified to deliver the 1-Day Your Journey Together Training at your program. This professional development option would provide both the background information related to the 4 modules of the Your Journey Together curriculum along with many hands-on opportunities to practice using with the YJT curriculum itself.
Resources Required for Training
For options 2, 3 and 4, it is recommended that each participant have access to the Your Journey Together Kit. While a program may not be prepared to purchase a YJT Kit for each participant at the time that the author-led portion of the training is delivered, it is important to note that the training will focus on the use of these resources. To that end, it is up to the program to ensure that adequate YJT Kits are made available to participants for either the webinar or live delivery of professional development.
