GPS for Parents – Coming April 4-5, 2018
GPS For Parents is a must for those already facilitating parent support groups AND those who would like to know how. TPDC is hosting this training, along with the support of Tucson Medical Center which is where the 2-day workshop will take place. Look for announcement and registration in December. There will be a 30 person registration limit. This is a cozy, hands-on format led by Massachusetts based faculty. This flyer provides information about what the training offers.
The Board of Directors of the TPDC wishes to extend its deep gratitude for the generous financial support of the Harriet Silverman Fund of the Women’s Foundation of Southern AZ. The 2017 grant award will enable increased engagement with immigrant populations in the Tucson area and continued educational outreach in the community.
