2016-2017 Parenting Education Reports available on the Parenting In Context website

The 2016-2017 Parent Education Reports are available on the Parenting In Context website. Each year we create reports using the CCE parent education data entered into a Statewide Data Reporting System. These reports document statistically significant changes in parenting behavior from pre- and post-survey. Reports are produced at the statewide level, as well as any county and program reports with two or more statistically significant changes in parenting behavior. This year's Statewide Report can be found here.

This year's County reports for Jefferson, Ontario, Orange, Suffolk, and Tompkins county can be found here.

This year's Program Reports for Discipline is Not a Dirty Word, Parenting Skills Workshop Series Program, and Parents Apart can be found here.

If you have any questions about the reports or the data, please contact Julia Chapman at jc2933@cornell.edu.

Tickets Available for Annual Levenback Memorial Event (February 14th)

Each year the New York Zero-to-Three Network (NYZTT) honors a local pioneer who has made a difference for young children and their families in New York at the Annual Levenback Memorial Event. NYZTT has selected Dr. Irwin Redlener, President Emeritus and Co-Founder of the Children's Health Fund, as this year's honoree for his lifetime of work on behalf of children.

Dr. Redlener will speak about poverty and its consequences that are keeping so many children from realizing their dreams and fulfilling their potential. He will consider why this matters for our collective future and what we can do now.

Dr. Redlener's talk will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on recent opportunities and threats to providing high-quality health care to young children living in poverty and will address policy recommendations and legislative advocacy efforts that can be taken to help ensure the healthy development of young children in poverty.

The event will be held on Wednesday, February 14 from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at UJA, 130 E. 59th St., New York, NY 10022.

Thank You from the Professional Development Committee


The Professional Development Committee would like to say thanks to all who helped us make our five Strong Roots events in 2017 successful. The topic of Cultural Humility through the Lens of Protective Factors was well received. We were also able to support five webinars and had the first NYSPEP webinar presented completely in Spanish this year! Special shout out to Nelly Garcia from The Guidance Center of Westchester for doing the Spanish translation of our Strong Roots webinar and presenting it as a webinar.

Infant-Early Childhood Mental Health Concerns Webinar Alert (February 16th)

In order to understand and treat the developmental, behavioral, and relationship needs of the child, clinicians and providers must focus on the parent-child relationship. Early childhood mental health intervention requires working with parents and young children together in a way that helps attend the needs of both--together and separately.

Research from early brain development, attachment, and childhood trauma supports the need for clinicians to develop areas of expertise to ensure those working with young children and their families are well-trained to promote optimal mental health and address behavioral health concerns. 

This webinar will focus on skills and competencies providers need when working with parents and young children and strategies for supporting social-emotional development. Attendees will be introduced to the NYS-AIMH Endorsement, a credentialing system that supports and recognizes professionals who apply infant and early childhood mental health principles to their practice. Endorsement is not a license but an overlay that complements one's professional license and/or other credentials.
