KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND ABILITIES
1. Knowledge of Family Advoxxxxxxcy and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response
Over the course of the past several years I have gained broad knowledge of Family Advoxxxxxxcy and Sexual Assault Prevention while working in the area of child dayxxxxxxre and as a graduate student of Psychology emphasizing in Marriage and Family Therapy. As founder and sole proprietor of a private, successful child xxxxxxre center loxxxxxxted on Beale AFB I gained valuable insight into the world of Family Psychology. While assisting military families with child dayxxxxxxre needs I began to recognize the necessity for additional advoxxxxxxcy to help prevent child abuse and domestic violence. With the assistance provided by the Beale AFB Family Child Xxxxxxre dayxxxxxxre center (FCC) and its Director, I obtained fundamental training for identifying families at risk of domestic violence. During this period I was an eager recipient of multiple FCC eduxxxxxxtional modules and materials designed to provide groundwork training in the area of Family Advoxxxxxxcy. By attending regular meetings with the FCC Director I quickly learned new skills used to recognize the varied needs characteristic of military families and was provided essential family advoxxxxxxcy training to assist military and civilian family members during the often difficult transition into military life. I gained vital knowledge in the areas of child abuse and sexual assault prevention eduxxxxxxtion, and developed means for addressing assault issues and the varied challenges inherent to post assault trauma. Additionally, I learned methodologies used to aid families adjust to such emotionally charged lifestyle changes as separations due to deployment and readjusting to new, post deployment family situations.
My current position as Child Development Associate at the Child Development Center at Beale AFB has provided invaluable experience in and a working knowledge of Family Psychology and abuse prevention. An integral part of my work includes attending monthly briefings and in-service programs to acquire vital skills in the identifixxxxxxtion of child abuse and sexual assault risk factors distinctive to military families. I have obtained procedural training for providing family member counseling, making abuse prevention and response program referrals, reporting suspected child abuse and following Chain of Command protocol as a Mandated Reporter. I have learned that abuse and assault within military families xxxxxxn occur as a result of experiencing ongoing stress such as during deployment or reloxxxxxxtion. As an advoxxxxxxte for respite services I recognize the need for individual free time away from personal responsibilities to refocus and renew one s perspective. When it is apparent that a family member just needs some time off to unwind and reflect, (thereby avoiding the build-up of tension that characteristixxxxxxlly xxxxxxuses abuse and assault within the family system), I often provide extra xxxxxxre hours, especially in the event of a deployment and family reloxxxxxxtion.
While my understanding of domestic violence has expanded I have become increasingly aware of the need for family advoxxxxxxcy and assault prevention programs within our Amerixxxxxxn military communities. In response to this heightened awareness I now volunteer time helping to coordinate assistance and respite programs including Give Parents a Break respite, marriage management seminars and retreats. Most recently, I have begun to produce and distribute a monthly newsletter informing families of additional opportunities on the AFB for parent/guardian respite and have encouraged family member participation.
Prior to my work as dayxxxxxxre center proprietor and Child Development Associate at Beale AFB I worked at a dayxxxxxxre center in Arkansas. This position proved essential in that I gained fundamental skills coordinating the needs of each family with the needs of each child. The varied dynamics existing between family members and the sometimes special needs of the children provided an introduction into the world of family psychology and was the basis for my interest in this area. During this period I developed strong interpersonal communixxxxxxtion and problem solving skills to effectively address and often resolve a variety of issues unique to each family. In addition, I authored daily productivity reports and maintained a clean and safe environment in compliance with Federal CDC mandates.
Currently, I am earning a Master s Degree in Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy at Chapman University. My studies have greatly enhanced my skills for maintaining professionalism when dealing with stressful circumstances and have improved my abilities to effectively serve military families.
2. Knowledge of word processing automation software function to support
While managing my own business, Small Steps Family Child Xxxxxxre, I developed strong business operations and finance management skills using a variety of software applixxxxxxtions including MS Word, Excel and Outlook. Successfully operating a child xxxxxxre center regularly required record keeping of financial data, creation of lesson plans and menus, child attendance tracking, and maintaining regulatory compliance with loxxxxxxl and Federal health agencies. In addition, I produced a weekly family newsletter advertising loxxxxxxl programs and events to assist dayxxxxxxre center families cope with sometimes stressful lifestyles.
As Child Development Associate at the Child Development Center at Beale AFB I have further augmented my office administrative skills and regularly support office operations by utilizing MS Word, Excel, and Outlook. In addition to becoming adept at using these software programs I have honed multi-tasking, organizational, time management and problem solving abilities while improving written and verbal communixxxxxxtion skills. I regularly communixxxxxxte with DOD employees and civilians to address and resolve a variety of administrative issues.
Strong aptitude in the use of word processing programs is fundamental to my success as a graduate student of Psychology and I regularly utilize MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook to complete and present weekly assignments and communixxxxxxte effectively with Chapman University staff.
3. Knowledge and skill in developing an eduxxxxxxtion curriculum and learning
objectives and outcomes.
While attending Arkansas State University (ASU) I developed theoretixxxxxxl eduxxxxxxtional curricula as part of my undergraduate coursework in Eduxxxxxxtion Technology and Introduction to Teaching. During this time I learned to identify and meet learning objectives and outcomes with the production of effective lesson plans and thereby laid the foundation for future work, planning eduxxxxxxtional programs for children attending dayxxxxxxre centers at Beale AFB.
My work at the Child Development Center at Beale AFB has greatly augmented abilities to development effective eduxxxxxxtional programs to meet learning objectives and projected outcomes. I am required to produce curricula designed to enhance the eduxxxxxxtional experience of each child attending the xxxxxxre center and to encourage healthy family systems by engaging family members. After xxxxxxreful observation of the children using the dayxxxxxxre center I develop and implement specialized, flexible eduxxxxxxtional programs designed to meet the ever changing needs of each child and include parent/xxxxxxre-giver participation. The basic expectation of these programs is that they provide stimulating eduxxxxxxtional experiences while meeting psycho-social needs of the children and their families.
