MK Caregiver Training Seminar
November 12-15, 2017
Have you recently stepped into a new position caring for MKs in your organization?
If the answer is YES, then Interaction’s MK Caregiver Training Seminar is for you!
This three-day interactive seminar is for those just stepping into new responsibilities as an MK caregiver or for those who have been working in this area, but want to reevaluate their program and develop new tools.
The seminar will help new caregivers develop a sustainable program, prioritize needs and build vision within their organization for MK care. It will help you understand key issues regarding MKs, the transition experience, the flow of care, key steps in assessing needs and developing a program, educational options and their implications for MK care programs.
The seminar will help experienced caregivers expand their programs, reevaluate what they are doing (with outside perspectives) and set new priorities. (It is assumed that participants will have read Third Culture Kid Experience by Pollock and Van Reken. If you haven’t, the book can be ordered from Interaction.) It will help experienced caregivers expanding their program, reevaluating their program and setting new priorities.
Whether a new or experienced caregiver, this seminar will help caregivers sharpen their skills, enhance their program, clarify their goals and set new priorities in providing crucially needed services to children and parents. Participants will receive a great notebook of resources and activities and will leave with practical ideas, strategies and resources to enhance their efforts.
Feedback on the Seminar:
“Even though I have worked with MKs for many years on the field . . . I really needed some concrete ideas on how to set up a program for our mission that was not hit and miss. The MK Caregiver Seminar not only confirmed some things we were already doing for our MKs but also gave me some ideas on how to further develop the program. They also gave me a very valuable resource–-their notebook full of ideas for developing an MK program. I would highly recommend this conference, especially if you are just getting things set up for your mission but also to anyone who wants to work with MKs.” (Twana Johnson—World Gospel Mission)
“If you are new to the role of MK care and want to equip yourself to dive into this new ministry, I recommend the MK Caregiver Training offered by Interaction International. This training offers you a great foundation of information and the accompanying notebook is a resource to which you will continually refer. Besides learning from some wise people experienced in MK care, you will also learn from the interaction you will have with your fellow students.” (Beth Barron—Christar)
