Coaching for Parents in the Trenches:

A Systemic Change Blueprint

Learn to set achievable goals, network with stakeholders, lobby lawmakers, build a coalition and inform state agency policies and practices to better support parents raising kids affected by brain disorders, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and other complex needs.

This course will focus on six components:

  • Building a Network - coalition & collaborations

  • Framing your Message - issue, image, and phrasing

  • Policy Lobby Strategy - lawmakers & politics

  • Bill Activism - constituents call to action

  • Using the Media - influencing public opinion

As a follow-up, we'll also help you find expanded advocacy training in your area to support you and grow your powerful voice.
