Presented by Valerie Humes
Solution Focused Therapy is practical for every role in the housing ministry and is not exclusive to professionals! This webinar on Solution Focused Therapy will equip participants with practical strategies to apply SFT techniques in their daily interactions with residents. SFT focuses on empowering the resident to independently construct solutions to barriers of life. This approach does not require residents to relive or discuss their past experiences but instead allows them to address their present feelings and the future that lies ahead.
As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear the Dobbs vs Jackson Women's Health Organization case, your staff, donors, board, and community members will have questions. This webinar bundle (complimentary for affiliates!) will give you the information to navigate these times with confidence.
Part 1: October 27 @12pm EST - The Results of Dobbs and the Impact on Clients
Presented by Beth Diemert and Sara Littlefield
As we anticipate a possible change in Roe, this is a perfect time to evaluate & plan for client programs that deliver hope and a future in response to their cultural worldview. Join us as we explore the ways you can help your clients be best informed in the valley of decision, now, and as we await the Dobbs oral arguments in November and their outcome likely in late June.
Part 2: November 2 @12pm EST - Dobbs for Donors - Advancement Perspective
Presented by Cindi Boston
Given the weight of the Dobbs case at the Supreme Court, it presents a unique opportunity to tell our stories. It is an exciting time to communicate with donors, create & execute a strategic plan for client programs, and enlist your financial partners in your bigger plan to deliver hope and change in your community -- with or without a change in Roe. Join us as we explore the ways you can inspire your donors as we await the Dobbs oral arguments in November and the outcome likely in late June.
Part 3: November 9 @12pm EST - Communications Strategy: Tools & Approaches for working with Media
Presented by Andrea Trudden

With eyes on pregnancy help and the pro-life movement in general, is your center ready to accept a call from a reporter? Do you have a media plan? Join us as we walk through how to message your organization to anyone and provide you with the tools your center needs to have an effective Communications Strategy.
