Event Details

The adage of “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” is not really true – words can hurt, but they can also heal. Please join us for the Words Matter series where we engage in open and authentic discussions about the impact of common terminology used in child-serving systems with those that are directly affected. Our goal is to illuminate how the terms we use can influence perception, approach, and practice, as well as explore alternative language as a means of intentionally shifting how we view and interact with youth, families, and each other. 

All sessions will be hosted simultaneously on Zoom and Facebook Live on the second Thursday of each month, January through August.
