Core of life facilitators training workshop (pregnancy, birth, parenting)

 

Overview

Target audience: Those working with Aboriginal youth, including midwives, nurses, teachers, Aboriginal Health Workers, allied health professionals and community workers who have the capacity to deliver the program in their area

Course summary: Core of Life (COL) is a comprehensive education program for adolescents. COL identifies birth as being central to cultures and families.

This course for facilitators is a hands-on, health promotion/prevention/early intervention program created by midwives. The course provides participants with the skills to understand the realities for adolescents of pregnancy, birth, and parenting a baby. Facilitators are then able to help communities promote awareness of the short and long term consequences of teen pregnancy and parenting. The education sessions provide an opportunity for young people to develop skills and knowledge in parenting and child development. This can help improve outcomes for young people and future families and promote connections within each community.
