Allotted Time * Topic Welcome and Leader Introductions Objectives Participants will be aware of schedule, brief background of leaders, and expectations Facilitator Notes / Directions Welcome participants Introduce facilitators Provide logistical information Give a brief overview of the session and days agenda Ask participants to form small groups of three with representation from different sectors, with directions to: o Introduce yourself, your work setting, and position o Share why it is important to you to be here at CAN seminar In large group, ask each person to share their name and one reason why they are here Present the ecological model of relational levels from the individual through the larger societal level Ask participants to merge their group of 3 with another group to form small groups of 6. In their groups: o Identify ways that children are valued within each of the levels as you see them in daily life. o What are the gifts and strengths you offer the larger community regarding the view of children? Invite each small group to share one of the ways they named that children are valued. Record answers as they are given.

Brainstorm with participants to identify conditions, attitudes and beliefs at the societal level that can lead to abuse and neglect. Add factors that werent identified. Use small group discussions to identify cultural, community and family factors. Discuss factors as they are reported to large group. Engage participants as a large group to identify children they see as vulnerable from within the various sectors. Create a list as they are identified. Facilitate a closing exercise to hear what participants learned. Feedback could include asking what was helpful from the day and what participants would like to see in the coming days.
