Vida would like to thank the Children’s Bureau’s Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (OCAN) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for hosting the 18th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN). From presentations to learning clusters, speakers, and exhibits, the conference was inspiring and enlightening. Vida staff enjoyed speaking with everyone who visited the Vida Health booth. Thank you for taking the time to learn about one of our newest programs, “All Babies Cry,” and Vida projects currently in development.
Congratulations to Jewel Roberts, Program Manager, Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Administration for Children and Families, for winning a copy of “All Babies Cry” through Vida’s raffle!
“All Babies Cry” is a new evidence-based intervention designed to promote healthy parental behavior and prevent child abuse in the first year of life. Funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development it incorporates the protective factors of the Strengthening Families initiative and empowers new mothers and fathers with practical demonstrations of infant soothing and clear strategies for managing normal stress in parenting.
