A healthy part of children’s emotional development includes occasional bouts of feeling down or stressed, but how do you know when it’s serious? Depression and anxiety are two of the most common childhood mental health disorders. Since you’re not a therapist, how should you respond? Learn practical, supportive, and ethical ways to help children cope and build resiliency.

Through this webinar, participants will learn to:

  1. Define disorders, behaviors, and reasonable expectations.
  2. Respond with appropriate activities and communication.
  3. Explore cognitive-behavioral techniques to increase coping and resiliency.

Accreditation Process Online Workshop v 2019

American Camp Association

Member: $0.00
Non-Member: $0.00

Audience: This workshop is designed for camp representatives who are preparing for accreditation visits in 2019 and beyond. The course is appropriate for those who are new to the accreditation process AND those who have been part of an accreditation visit or completed standards training in the past. Every camp being visited must have at least one person who completes the workshop on behalf of the camp; that person must actively assist in preparation for the accreditation visit, be on site a significant amount of time during the camp season and participate fully in the on-site accreditation visit.

Workshop Objectives: Participants leave feeling excited, engaged, and ready to prepare for an accreditation visit. They know where to find and how to use information, resources, and technology provided by ACA. They can navigate the Accreditation Process Guide, 2019 Edition to understand compliance and applicability of standards, including all revisions to the standards and the accreditation process, and they can articulate the steps in the visit timeline and the responsibilities of the camp and the visitors.

The Accreditation Process Guide, 2019 Edition:  Often you'll be asked to look at specific standards or pages in the Accreditation Process Guide, so it it recommended you have a copy with you while you complete the course. If you don't have a printed copy, you can access an electronic version via My Accreditation. Instructions for downloading an electronic version can be found here: www.acacamps.org/accreditation-standards/my-accreditation/2019/how-guides/various-ways-print-standards-related-information
