Supporting Parents in Crisis and Humanitarian Contexts

June 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Please join us for special panel discussion exploring the current state of parenting support in crisis and humanitarian contexts, ongoing efforts to deliver these parenting interventions, and recommendations for providing parents in crisis with the support they need.

June is international Parenting Month, and we are taking this opportunity to call for accessible parenting support for every family. The unique needs of parents and caregivers in crisis and humanitarian contexts are often overlooked, despite being amongst the most vulnerable in areas affected by armed conflict, natural disasters, and health emergencies.

Join us, together with the Global Parenting Initiative for a special panel discussion to mark both Parenting Month and World Refugee Day. Participants will learn about current evidence and research gaps on the provision of parenting support in crisis contexts; resources for promoting caregiver mental health and psychosocial well-being; existing program models for serving parents and caregivers in different settings; and recommendations for future work in this area.

The webinar will include brief presentations by experts from Parenting for Lifelong Health, the Global Parenting Initiative, UNICEF, WHO, Early Childhood Development Action Network, and Save the Children. Joining the panel discussion will be representatives from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the International Rescue Committee, War Child Holland, and Karachi Relief Trust.
