Journal CEU: Resilience and Rebuilding in the COVID-19 Era: Stories From the Field 2021

image


Since the last Stories From the Field issue in the summer of 2020, we have experienced a year of traumatic circumstances that have dramatically affected the well-being of babies, families, early childhood professionals, and their systems of care. The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented fear, illness, isolation, loss, and grief. In addition, young children and their families have also been experiencing the direct and indirect impacts of other extended traumas in their communities, including racial injustice and social tensions, natural disasters, and economic stressors. As with any profound challenge, the past year also brought unparalleled opportunities for growth and transformation.

So for this year’s Stories From the Field issue, we reached out to our ZERO TO THREE members and colleagues and asked them to share their experiences as early childhood professionals in organizations that have been called upon to adapt, innovate, and form new partnerships to overcome significant barriers to meet the needs of the most vulnerable children and families. In the articles in this issue, authors from a wide variety of early childhood programs share how they have discovered strengths, learned skills, formed new partnerships, and found innovative ways to pivot and reimagine how to continue their critical work.

Learning goals for this event include: 

  1. Identify practical ways to address crisis through team building and inclusivity.
  2. Recognize the importance of supporting the well-being of staff so that they can then effectively engage with the families in their caseload.
  3. Describe the challenges that childcare providers faced during the COVID-19 pandemic and call for racial equity and social justice.
  4. Assesses benefits and challenges of providing IECMHC services and support remotely.
  5. Identify practices used by administrators, in-home educators, center-based teachers, and others to support children and families in virtual learning.
  6. Identify the challenges families faced during the pandemic in marginalized communities as well as the strength they have to cope with the crisis and move forward.
  7. Articulate ongoing support that the IECMH community will need during the ongoing pandemic and continued civil unrest.
  8. Understand the role of organizational relationships in moving identified trainings from an in-person to virtual model.
