Public Health–Seattle & King County and the Washington School-Based Health Alliance invite you to join the second installment of our three-part professional development series with the Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC). This session on Communication and Feedback Practices to Strengthen SBHC Partnerships will be held on Thursday, January 26 from 10am to noon via Zoom.
When school-based health centers, community based organizations, and schools are immersed in the work of serving youth and families, it can be difficult to find time to invest in relationships between the adults and organizations who are coordinating services. And yet, lack of communication and coordination can lead to challenges and conflict.
What practices can you put in place that align with values you share with your partners, such as building trust, continuous improvement, and accountability? In this interactive virtual workshop, we will explore ways to build a culture of open and effective communication within our partnerships, including giving and receiving feedback. Participants will become familiar with tools that support communication and equitable facilitation of meetings, and identify Feedback Touch Points to incorporate into their collaborative relationships. Our guiding tools from YDEKC’s School and Community Partnership Toolkit will provide you with resources to explore during the workshop and to apply after the session in depth.
This workshop is designed for leaders at all levels within school-based health centers, as well as those in schools, school districts, and community-based organizations who are developing or managing partnerships between schools and community-based organizations.
