The California Department of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch (CDPH/IVPB) and the California Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention (CDSS/OCAP)’s, Essentials for Childhood (EfC) Initiative invites your participation in the “Family Experiences During COVID-19 Pandemic Data Webinar” on Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM.
The purpose of this webinar is to share findings from wave 1 of the Family Experiences During COVID-19 Pandemic Questionnaire that was administered in November 2020. Drs. Robert Sege from the HOPE Project at Tufts Medical Center and Lori Turk-Bicakci from the KidsData program at PRB will provide an overview of the questionnaire, summarize California and national findings, share where to access California data and national messages, and offer highlights from the Healthy Outcomes Positive from Experience (HOPE) perspective.
The questionnaire, Family Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic, covers a wide range of content areas, including adverse childhood experiences as well as emotional and behavioral health, to help inform on the impact of the pandemic on children and families. The questionnaire was designed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA), and Tufts Medical Center, Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences (HOPE). In California, the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health (LPFCH) and the California Department of Public Health Essentials for Childhood (EfC) Initiative led by the California Department of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch and California Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention, funded an oversample of the questionnaire to produce findings at the sub-state level.
