During the last week of June, the Child and Family lab had the honor of hosting a team of researchers and clinicians from the University of Michigan. The Michigan team spent three days training Dr. Gray’s child and family lab members, Tulane School Psychology graduate students, and other community providers in the Mom Power program so that it can be adapted and implemented to serve the New Orleans community.
Mom Power is an evidence-based intervention program that aims to support families who are facing adversity and stress through the challenges of caring for young children. Aligning with the Child and Family lab values, Mom Power is a strength-based, nurturing approach to promoting transgenerational resilience for mothers and children.
The training was incredibly informative and powerful and we are so grateful for the Michigan team for bringing their knowledge to us all in New Orleans! A big thank you to our wonderful trainers: Dr. Kate Rosenblum, PhD, Dr. Maria Muzik, MD, MS, Melisa Schuster MSW, CAADC, and Julie Ribaudo, MSW, ACSW, Infant Mental Health Specialist. We look forward to putting our Mom Power knowledge to action in the coming years.
