The Circle of Parents Facilitator Training is designed to train individuals as facilitators of Circle of Parents groups. These groups provide caregivers across Minnesota with mutual self-help support environments for talking about their parenting struggles and successes. The Facilitator Training is free to participants who would like to lead and facilitate a Circle of Parents group anywhere in Minnesota. The content of the training is created by Minnesota Communities Caring for Children and utilizes training resources from the Circle of Parents National Network.

Description: Every day we engage with people who are very different and similar from us: race, gender, ethnicity and more. Epigenetics tells us that we are more alike than different. So why can’t we just get along?
Our worldviews -values, beliefs, assumptions, attitudes and ideas- impact everything from how we understand the nature of reality to how we respond to the environment around us. It informs our goals and desires, shaping conscious and unconscious perceptions, motivations and values. The number of perspectives is infinite; no one is more “right” than another. We are each part of a complex, ever-changing, and interconnected universe. What we do influences the world around us, and the world around us influences us, even if we are not aware of how.
When we examine how our worldview impacts our interaction with people who have a history of trauma and take a deeper look at our own trauma, then we can see the many places where those spaces collide. Join us on an exploration on how to better serve others without the interference of our own biases and assumptions.
