Center for Early Education and Development (CEED)

CEED Trainings
Does your organization have some extra time for training this summer? Do you have some money to use on training before the end of the fiscal year? CEED can help. We offer trainings on a variety of early education and development topics, including:
· Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health
· Addressing the Needs of Young Children with Challenging Behaviors
· Steps Towards Effective and Enjoyable Parenting (STEEP) and Seeing is Believing (SIB)
· Individual Growth and Development Indicators

For a full list of training topics and more information on how your organization can purchase a CEED training, please visit http://education.umn.edu/ceed/coursesandtrainings/default.html.

And don’t forget…STEEP™
Steps Toward Effective, Enjoyable Parenting
Relationship-based Strategies for Working with Infants and Families in High-Risk Circumstances

STEEP™ works on the premise that a secure attachment between parent and infant establishes ongoing patterns of healthy interaction. A secure parent-child attachment lays the foundation for later competence and well-being. Through home visits and group sessions, STEEP™ facilitators work alongside parents to help them understand their child’s development. Parents learn to respond sensitively and predictably to their child’s needs, and to make decisions that ensure a safe and supportive environment for the whole family.
