Children’s Friend and Family Services (Children’s Friend) will offer a Children’s Behavioral Health Course on January 27th at its Lynn site. This is a grant funded project in connection with Urban College in Boston and North Shore Community College. Some current family partners and therapeutic mentors along with some candidates who applied to join the course will be starting a two semester course offered at Children’s Friend Lynn site.
The course is intended to help broaden and diversify the workforce by training current staff and new potential hires in areas like writing and ethics and boundaries and other areas to prepare them for work in this field. Staff who participate in this receive nine credits from Urban College and a certificate as a community health worker from The Department of Public Health.
